....................... Let’s now move on to today’s technical part, which is dedicated entirely to silver and silver mining stocks, as we believe that these markets (especially the latter) provide exceptional investment opportunities – we have already mentioned that in the last week’s essay. We’ll start with the SLV ETF short-term chart (charts courtesy by http://stockcharts.com.)
In the short-term SLV ETF chart, we have illustrated a declining trend channel. The declining resistance line has not been broken last week, and the target area remains unchanged. There is one significant difference, however.
We have fine-tuned the cyclical turning points to better correspond to recent tops and bottoms. It seems likely that this will improve the accuracy of future market calls and we should begin to see the fruits of our labor in a week or so, as this is where the next cyclical turning point is located.
So, have we just seen a bottom in silver? Most likely yes. Silver was about to move higher due to the cyclical turning point. It also reached our target area, so we believe it’s now ready to rally once again.
Now, let’s have a look at the white metal from the non-USD perspective to see whether the significant drop in silver’s price that took place on Friday is visible in other currencies than the U.S. dollar. It is a non-USD silver chart, meaning a weighted average of silver priced in different currencies, other than the USD – the weights are as in the USD Index, so this charts is similar to the one featuring silver priced in euro.
On the above chart, the final bottom also seems to have almost or already been reached. The implications are bullish.
While the decline in the white metal’s price was significant indeed, we would like to draw your attention to the silver mining stocks chart, where we’ll see that the corresponding decline was not at all that big.
Today we again include the long-term Global X Silver Miners chart. The rally seen last Wednesday was truly spectacular and so was the lack of decline on Thursday. Moreover, the drop in price on Friday was nowhere near the magnitude of the corresponding move in the underlying metal! This is an important achievement. The silver miners held their gains, being pretty much flat on Thursday when gold miners declined. There is exceptional strength in the silver stocks right now.
Perhaps we are close to the last call for purchasing silver stocks before the huge rally truly begins. While their price levels could move down a bit if gold and silver decline, it will probably be to a minimal degree. It seems that the rally will be significant and it appears too risky to wait for slightly lower prices.
Summing up, the white metal seems to have already bottomed and the rally seems to be just around the corner. Silver mining stocks continue to show exceptional strength and the outlook remains bullish.
Thank you for reading. Have a great and profitable week!
