Silver Price Trend Forecast

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020 Jan 29, 2020 - 02:57 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Commodities

We can all dream about Silver outpacing Gold. However the truth about Silver is that it tends to under perform during precious metals bull markets, and only really coming alive in the bull markets final stages when it tends to spike. So Silver for 2019 did what Silver tends to do which is to under perform against Gold. Though in reality maybe investors tend to set their hopes too high, as a gain of 15% for the year is still pretty good going against Gold up 19%.


Two things stand out about Gold's more volatile cousin -

1. Silver actually trended well during the year, that's normally not the case i.e. Silver is prone to giving lots of false signals. But not for 2019, we got a clear signal early June on break of the main down trend line. Similarly the break of support trendline late September signaled weakness ahead, though followed by a fake break higher during Late October, with the actual break pending until Mid December.

2. That Silver's December rally was a lot weaker than Gold's which set new bull market highs, whilst Silver has yet to break it's 2019 high of $19.75. Which reminds that the norm is to expect Silver to under perform the Gold price most of the time, regardless of what the ratio and indicators are saying about how cheap Silver is.

Still 15% IS a good return for buy and hold investors. Whilst traders need to be aware of Silvers volatile nature that makes Silver a tough market to trade.

Recap of my 3 Silver forecasts of 2019.

Analysis of 11th June concluded in updated expectations for 2019 Silver Investing Trend Analysis and Price Forecast 2019 for a bull run to at least $18.50.

Silver Price Trend Forecast Conclusion

Therefore my forecast conclusion is for the Silver price to continue to trade in a volatile trading range with an upward bias towards a target of $18.50 later in 2019 as it steps higher into each successive trading range i.e. $15.25 to $16.25, then $16.25 to $17.30, then $17.30 to $18.50, which would represent a 25% gain on it's current price of $14.74. Whilst a spike to at $35+ remains a longer term objective.

Whilst my update of late July Silver Investing Trend Analysis and Price Forecasts 2019 Update expected a volatile bull run to continue along with the Gold price for Silver to at least target $19 and then $21. With the subsequent $19.75 high placing Silver mid-way between my 2 targets for 2019.

Silver Price Trend Forecast

The Silver price continues to target my 2 primary resistance targets for 2019 of $19 and $21. Once we reach and break those levels then we will know what to expect beyond $21. With the following graph illustrating the expected central trend trajectory for the Silver price, baring in mind it is a volatile commodity.

Whilst my last look at Silver on the 31st of October (Silver Trend Forecast 2019 Update - Nov to Dec 2019) expected the then correction to resolve in a sharp rally following the Gold price to new highs for the year.

Silver Price Trend Forecast

The Silver price having achieved my first primary target of $19 for 2019, now continues to target my 2nd primary target of $21 before the end of this year. Once we reach and break that level then we will know what to expect beyond $21. With the following graph illustrating the expected central trend trajectory for the Silver price, baring in mind this is a volatile commodity.

Subsequently Silver only just managed to rally to end 2019 to $18 after slumping to a early December low of $16.57, greatly under performing the Gold price.
