Since April, 2011, Silver has been getting crushed. When I say crushed, I mean it. Down over 65%, this precious/industrial commodity has been a wasteland for those hoping it would increase in price. We don’t fight price. Price is the manifestation of opinion and final arbiter of value. Price knows more than we do. We simply identify opportunities. And Silver, curious investor, may be approaching the best investment opportunity of the next decade. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There’s likely more downside to come. Between Thursday and Friday, Silver (represented here by SLV, the Silver ETF), continued its relentless downtrend – down another 7%.
We have some targets identified where a bottom in Silver seems logical. See the chart below (click it to embiggen). At first, it may seem a little confusing, but it’s really quite simple. Price moves to equilibrium. The orange annotations mark two measured moves (from the 2011-2013 broken descending triangle and from the 2013-2014 broken descending triangle). Those two measured moves end up within 10 cents of each other. We don’t get picky. The 13.50 – 14.00 range should provide stiff resistance to any further downside pressure. Assisting this logical turning point, is the downward trendline in green. And to help us in timing any potential bottom are some very accurate cycles (annotated in purple). Focus your eyes on only the cycles, you’ll notice they align with many minor and major turning points. Adding everything up, we are going to be looking for a major low in Silver sometime between now and February, 2015. Our price target is between 13.50 – 14.00. Once we reach that level, we’ll be looking for evidence of a change of direction. If/when that happens, I’ll let you know and share with you why this could a be major opportunity.
