Silver … Sold Out !

… And The Bulls Are Trapped

How is it possible to have silver stocks sold out here and here, yet silver bears have trapped the bulls.

As we’ll show below, this morning’s action in SLV, has confirmed the reversal; a Wyckoff up-thrust, pointing silver’s probability to lower levels.

For starters, let’s recap on how this (trading) game is played.

That is, the public i.e., the masses, need to be led to and fro so they are continuously on the wrong side of the trade.

That’s it.

So it is with precious metals and specifically silver.

The media came out recently, effectively telling everyone ‘Now is the time to buy gold’.

Where were these guys in 2001, when gold bottomed around $271/oz.

No, they show up at the end of the move … not the start.

Public Buys Hype, Not Facts

So the public has bought into the hype and run the silver coffers dry. Everyone excepts an immediate currency collapse and certainly anything can happen.

However, as Undedicated Economist points out, the dollar strength (first identified in this post) can last for years.

The original (bullish reversal) analysis is now supported by the facts; it’s been nearly two-years since that post and the dollar (UUP) is still headed higher.

So, let’s find out where silver is likely to go. For that, we go to the weekly chart.

Silver SLV, Weekly

The set-up, already posted; Spring-to-Up-Thrust.

It’s a repeating pattern found across the markets.

Price action gets itself into a spring condition by penetrating support which subsequently sets up the reversal; the up-thrust.

Next, we’ll use the Fibonacci Projection Tool, showing likely areas for downside destination.

A full 1 : 1 projection gets us right back to where we started the whole ‘short-squeeze’.

If SLV, gets back down to the 10.50 – 11.0, level, one can only imagine what type of hype will be in vogue.

However, at those levels, it’s reasonable to expect the local bullion dealer will be begging for sales … they might even offer their product at, or near, spot. 🙂

Trading A Silver Collapse

No One Expects The ‘Spanish Inquisition

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition like no one expects a collapse in silver.

From a contrarian standpoint, just because it’s not expected does not in itself, mean it’s going to happen.

However, this site’s been building a strategic premise for years, food supplies come first then precious metals (not advice, not a recommendation).

Here are links that span over two-years; successively building on the case, we’re (potentially) in a ‘Genesis 41‘ situation first more than a Wimar Republic event.

Corn Flattened

“Ten percent of the U.S corn crop was instantly wiped out last week during what’s described as an inland hurricane.”

‘Stacking’ … Strategic Error ?

“As we continue on, it’s becoming clear that single-mindedly stockpiling inedible metal in hopes of surviving what’s here now, and what’s coming, is a major (if not potentially fatal) blunder”.

Putin’s Gold … Paradigm, Not

Gold has never been the same since the Derecho of 2020.

In fact, that was the pivot point for both gold and corn which are now, inversely correlated.”

Corn Train Wreck, Continues

“The food supply is, and is going to be destroyed; one way or another.”

… And This, Just Out

As if to drive that last bullet item home, we have:

The ‘Right Side’ of The Trade

Being on the right side of the trade means by definition (nearly) everyone else, is on the wrong side.

The last report said that both silver and gold are at The Danger Point®; The location where risk is least for positioning either long or short (not advice not a recommendation).

Based on prior analysis, the expectation is for a continued decline in the precious metals.

Silver Trading ‘Vehicles’

There are many ways to work the silver market.

Several trading vehicles are silver futures (mini futures), silver ETFs, options on ETFs, leveraged bull and bear ETFs and lastly, the physical metal itself.

As of this date (9/18/22), quotes for a typical bag of ‘junk silver’ are below:

SD Bullion

$100 Face Value Bag: $2,006.44

Apmex

$100 Face Value Bag: $2,064.92

Kitco

$100 Face Value Bag: “Out of stock”

This is not an endorsement. The purpose here is to have ‘place-holder’ quote(s) going forward.

Summary

The post is already lengthy.

Next up on the ‘Silver Collapse’, we’ll discuss the other trading vehicles; futures, options, ETFs and leveraged ETFs.
