Silver is always the most volatile of metals in terms of price.
Today the silver price has broken through $30 an ounce and that is a
significant move in the technical charts.
Earlier in August chartist Herbert Moolman highlighted a pennant
pattern in the silver price chart that could have meant either a rise or
a fall in the price, see below:
What we have now is the price breakout that confirms the next move in
the silver price is going to be up, and given the established high
volatility of the silver price it should be a big one. It could well be a
new all-time high above $50 and towards the $60 by the end of September
target set in the Old Dubai Gold Souk at the start of the year.
The long sideways consolidation from the 50 per cent correction from
almost $50 in April 2011 seems to be over and silver is resuming its
upward march towards regaining the price it last held 32 years ago.
People talk about the S&P 500 index as looking cheap at 13-14
these days but that is nothing by comparison to a commodity that still
trades for less than it did three decades ago. Silver is also still
cheap in comparison to gold against which it is always benchmarked and
gold prices are rising strongly too.
You won’t get many gifts as an investor this autumn but silver is probably going to be one of them.
