Chart below shows SIL Silver Miners ETF completed wave ((A)) at 94.03 back in 2011. It is worth noting that this is when Gold and Silver also saw a peak back in 2011. This was followed by a 3 waves pull back to 14.94 in 2016. Then SIL ETF rallied as an impulse to 54.34 ending in August 2016, following this it saw a 3 waves pull back to 16.00 in March 2020 before it started rallying again. It rallied to 52.87 ending in August 2020, now the cycle from March 2020 low is over and SIL ETF is in a pull back right now. There are 3 types of extensions in an impulse structure, extension can either take place in wave 1, wave 3 or wave 5.

It is worth noting that peak in Silver was the same as in Silver Miners ETF (SIL) and wave (II) low in SIL was the secondary low in Silver in March 2020. It is evident that Silver will not trade below zero line as no one would pay you to get Silver from there which supports the view that correction of the Grand Super cycle in Silver ended in March 2020. Moreover, Gold has already broken above 2011 peak and has an incomplete bullish sequence suggesting Silver will also be looking for a break of 2011 peak and if that happens, Silver Miners ETF should follow so the current pull back is a good opportunity for buyers to look for an entry to catch a possible wave III.
