Having said all that there is a fair chance of it turning higher soon, as in addition to being oversold and at support, its COTs now look bullish, as we can see on the latest COT chart stacked below the 14-month silver chart for direct comparison, with gold’s COTs being more so, and with gold’s seasonal factors now approaching their strongest for the year, silver may come along for the ride if gold now advances, which looks likely also because there is a good chance that the dollar will react back over the near-term, as we have observed in the parallel Gold Market update. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, August 6th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">The picture for silver looks dull and weak, and it has dropped back over the past month or two, like gold, in response to dollar strength.

This base pattern is mature, as we can see on silver’s latest 10-year chart below, and with the Right Shoulder close to complete, the time for silver to advance out of this base pattern is at hand, and thus it is viewed as no coincidence that the dollar, which we look at in the parallel Gold Market update, is rolling over and looking set to drop. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wednesday, June 6th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">The silver market has become so quiet that you can hear a pin drop, a most unusual situation in this normally rather volatile metal.

This is because silver tends to underperform gold in the late stages of bearmarkets. One important effect of this is to camouflage the incubating bullmarket in silver, as investors tend to take one look at its long-term chart and say “Well, that’s not much good is it? – it’s still going down.” </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Sunday, January 28th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Since gold and silver are “joined at the hip” much of what is written about gold and the dollar in the <a href="https://www.clivemaund.com/article.php?id=68"><span style="color: #000000;">parallel Gold Market update</span></a> applies equally to silver, so here we will look mainly at the points that need to be made separately for silver.</span></p><p><a href="http://216.218.184.125/commentary/silver-market-update-17073" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 28 Jan 2018 16:37:10 +0000 Clive Maund 17073 at http://216.218.184.125
