Long Term Technical Analysis for Silver Prices

The $18.50 level proves itself as a long-term resistance and will not give way for the bull easily. This week, the price of silver might consolidate and move downward breaking two bearish candlestick patterns. The downside target of breakout is $16.80 – $17.10 where traders could look to enter for a long term position.

A Bullish Breakout for Silver Prices more Probable than Rally Reversal

Interestingly, silver prices look stronger than gold at this point. The silver bullish traders continued to boost their bullish net positions in silver futures & want to see a strong breakout above $19. Seasonality in silver prices could play an important role in the weeks to come. The coming weeks will be extremely interesting and also important for the silver market.

Weak Silver Demand & Record Shorts - The Cartel is Winning the Manipulation Game Both Sides

The Cartel has been quite successful in manipulating silver prices (and gold) down ever since 2011. Every major rise has been slammed with unimaginable record paper shorts ever since. The “TRUE Measure” of the Cartel’s success at manipulating the bullion markets is that it has now succeeded in manipulating the minds of the physical gold and silver investors. Here’s the HOW & WHY.

US Silver Imports Hit Record Amid Declining Demand - Where's The Silver?

The US had a record amount of silver imports in 2016 while its apparent consumption declined considerably. This does not make sense. It seems as if some large entities or institutions are acquiring a lot of silver at this low price before the global stock markets collapse. When the markets finally crash, there won’t be too many high-quality assets to move one’s funds into. Now that makes sense.

Gold Prices Search for Support while Silver Prices Test Resistance

Gold and silver are still in the same range established within the previous top and bottom. However, silver again has something to boast of, this metal triggered the long-term resistance of the Descending Broadening Wedge at $18.05 that started last summer. It is an important confirmation that the long-term correction could be over soon.

A Massive New Rally in Silver Prices could take the Gold

The S&P 500 is up 5.77%, riding a wave of Trump-mentum. Gold is doing better, with an 8.47% gain. But silver is sprinting, with a 13.5% gain. If silver prices keep up this pace, that would work out to a 65% gain for the year. Silver is ready to run — the starter pistol is cocked. The race is beginning, and silver prices could take the gold. Investors should get out of the way, or ride this rally for all it’s worth.

Impossible to Fully Comprehend the Looming Upside Shock in Silver Prices

There are several forces that seal the fate of the seven big COMEX silver shorts. None of us will be able to fully comprehend the upcoming shock to the upside in silver prices. This has little to do with price per se, just the mechanics of the market; but it will be seen most vividly in price. When the big shorts start to buy back their shorts to the upside, the world of silver will have changed.

Do Current Silver Prices Offer a Better Investment Opportunity than Gold Now?

The upside potential for silver prices is undoubtedly greater than that for gold in the next few years. Here are some solid reasons why. And as an investor, or someone just seeking to preserve purchasing power, one doesn’t want to consider what is happening with silver prices right now, but one wants to consider where silver prices will be heading in the future.

Here's what could Amount to be "The Game-Changer" in Silver (and Gold)

If possible lower silver prices don’t result in the liquidation of the new longs, then it is hard for me to see why silver prices would stay depressed & won’t in time race higher. This is an equation where the price could move quite disproportionately to the upside, despite the appearance of a bearish market structure. For that reason, I am further resolved against selling silver at this time.

March 2017 brings a Crucial Inflection Point for Silver Price Rally

Right now, the silver price has arrived at a very important inflection point where two leading trend lines ‘meet’. This is, by far, one of the most important price levels for silver. March 2017 will be a very important month for the silver market. Silver investors should pay close attention to the $18.50 level. If that is broken to the upside, the real test is the $21 level.

Silver Demand in India Slammed after Demonetisation

Silver imports by India, one of the world’s top buyers, will probably shrink this year to the lowest since 2012 as the government cracks down on black money, farmers struggle for cash & stockpiles remain ample. Purchases from overseas plunged 60% to about 3,000 metric tons last year & will contract further in 2017. Investment demand for silver will continue to fare badly too.

Silver Production Suffered Double-Digit Decline in 2nd Largest Producing Nation

Peru’s silver production declined 2% in November versus the same month last year and even lower by 11% in December. As prices declined sharply after 2013, investment in Peru’s mining industry plummeted. Peru’s mining investment fell 57% in 2016 versus its peak in 2013 & 44% compared to the prior year. The world is now reaching peak production in energy & metals.

Will Silver Prices Continue Outpacing Gold Prices In 2017?

Precious metals are off to the races in the first six weeks of 2017, as returns in both gold and silver are beating the S&P 500. The current technical chart pattern for silver prices is stronger than gold. The silver market is trading above its 50-day & 100-day moving averages, which are bullish signals for trend following traders. Why are silver prices outperforming gold? Here are some solid reasons.

Silver Prices Hold Regardless of Dollar Strength - Dips will be Well Supported

The fact silver prices have managed to accelerate higher while the dollar has been strengthening is noteworthy. With base metals generally rallying too, it looks as though silver is attracting industrial buying. A show of dollar strength may act as a headwind, so we would not be surprised to see prices consolidate at lower numbers; but we expect dips will be well supported.

Silver Stocks to Soar Backed by Massive Bull Run in Silver Prices

Silver stocks are a place investors aren’t paying much attention to. With fundamentals in the silver market getting better, silver prices could soar. This is going to give a boost to silver stocks. Silver stocks are selling for literally pennies on the dollar. In the coming bull run on silver stocks, a lot of money is to be made. Investors could make massive returns.

Physical Silver Shortage & Short Squeeze will Trigger a Huge Rush for Delivery on Comex

A great rush for actual delivery on COMEX silver contracts is likely to come from industrial users once a physical shortage becomes apparent. Some combination of a delivery rush or a short squeeze is certain to come. When silver prices begin to rise strongly these large shorts will quickly lose control & start to buy back their short positions & thus contribute mightily to the price blow-off.

Will Silver Prices Continue Bull Run or is a Correction Close-by?

Silver prices gained by a good margin last month with gains of around 10% in the international markets. The run-up in base metals also contributed to the rise in silver prices. The net longs in silver increased by 62,964 contracts as on 31 January 2017. However, there is a possibility of these longs getting liquidated in the weeks ahead which will pressurize silver prices.

Bullish Indicators & Constructive Price Action Confirm Bullish Outcome for Silver Prices

The confluence of bullish indicators & constructive price action confirms that a bullish outcome is a real possibility for silver prices. Add the prospects of a weaker US dollar & these factors create the perfect ingredients that send this precious metal soaring. Technical indicators & price patterns seen here on the silver price chart clearly suggest that a rally is likely to ensue.

Best Bets, Concerns & Risks When Trading the Silver Market

Silver is in for a rough few months ahead as the volatility is likely to be fairly severe. I believe that the Silver markets have probably bottomed longer-term, and with this being the case if you have the ability to take a non-leveraged position, perhaps you should. Commodity markets in general should do fairly well, especially commodity currencies.

The Sun Shines Bright on the Future of Silver

Increasing solar power generation in the country and elsewhere, along with rising industrial demand from the US and China, has pushed silver prices up 8% in January & the trend is likely to continue through the year. Silver prices are expected to continue moving higher in the year 2017 backed by a strong pick up in the physical demand as a result of increasing use in solar power globally.
