Silver's Amazing Losing Streak Recalls Phillies' 1961 Season

|
May 5, 2017 - 12:47am

Silver’s losing streak could make it into the record book if it continues for yet a little while longer. The July contract has fallen for 13 straight days and is starting to look like the 1961 Philadelphia Phillies, who lost 21 straight games before beating the Milwaukee Braves 7-4 on a stiflingly hot day in August, 1961.  I was a bigger Phillies fan back then than I am a silver fan now. They had Robin Roberts, Stan Lopata, Harry Anderson, Ed Bouchee and a catcher name Carl Sawatski who is best remembered, if remembered at all, for having caught behind home plate without a chest protector. Were that Silver showed such daring and pluck! Instead, it has continued relentlessly lower and seems bound for the 15.485 target shown (a slight adjustment from the target previously given here). I’m confident it will achieve that Hidden Pivot and that there will be a tradeable bounce from very close to it. But to all of you silver bulls who like to dream big dreams, the bounce would need to hit 19.11 (!) to provide real encouragement for the long-term. Incidentally, I am treating June Gold as a separate case, since its long-term chart doesn’t look nearly as bad.
