Silver Reversal Complete, Now In Early Stages of Powerful Uptrend

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Jan 30, 2012 - 03:52 AM GMT

By: Clive_Maund

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn important reversal has now completed in silver and it is in the early stages of what promises to be a powerful uptrend that should take it comfortably to new highs.


On its 7-month chart we can see how just over a week ago it broke out from its small Head-and-Shoulders bottom, an event which we had anticipated, having oberved it stealthily breaking out from its bullish Falling Wedge downtrend simply by trading sideways for a number of days, which observation was put to good use by us piling into silver bull ETFs just ahead of the H&S breakout. This past week, emboldened by gold's important breakout and robust action in PM stocks, silver has followed up by advancing through the resistance level shown, although given that it is now becoming substantially overbought short-term, as shown by its RSI indicator, it would not be surprising to see it drop back temporarily beneath this resistance again. Overall, however, the picture has become strongly positive, so it may do no more than pause briefly before continuing still higher.

Silver 7-Month Chart

The long-term charts for silver are much more chaotic than those for gold, where we have very well defined inner and outer trend channels since the 2008 lows, which gold has adhered to with an almost religious zeal. The best channel fit we can find for silver is shown on the 5-year chart below - if anyone knows of a better one, drop me a line - I'll be interested to see it. If this channel is correct, or close to correct, and common sense dictates that it is, then the prospects for silver are very good here, as it is likely to advance towards either of the upper channel return lines shown on the chart, which would certainly result in handsome gains from the current price, and such an advance would be congruent with the bullish outlook for gold set out in the parallel Gold Market update.

Silver 5-Year Chart

The fundamental reasons for the suddenly rosy outlook for Precious Metals, and commodities generally, are set out briefly in the Gold Market update, and for ease of reference, the relevant paragraph is repeated below...

In this modern age of market manipulation and meddling, politicians are not prepared to give the forces of capitalism free rein to do their necessary work of straightening out distortions, since that conflicts with their agenda. Thus, instead of letting European banks collapse, the Fed has decided to rescue them with "back door" QE dressed up as swaps etc - the reason is, as you might expect, not altruistic - if the European banks collapse, they will drag down the US banks, and as the US banks are the Fed's masters and the bosses of the entire system, that cannot be allowed to happen, whatever the cost elsewhere. That is why the markets are rallying again across a broad front and why the outlook for gold and silver, and commodities generally, is once again bright, for the European bailout means money creation - and inflation.
