The Silver Permabull

As experienced traders, you rarely want to take an extreme position. Being biased isn’t useful for objective chart analysis. Many dare to do that anyhow since no one remembers you making a bad call 15 years ago, but if you were right you can quote: “I told you so”. The other side of the coin is that trend needs to be identified early and then played just right since there is no grander edge than directional momentum. The Silver Permabull.

We aren’t after fame and glory. Midas Touch provides data as accurately as possible supporting good wealth preservation and wealth creation. We provided many principles and data about Silver over the last two years to shed light on a possible bull run in Silver. It was spot on to advise entries in March when Silver was trading still at US$12.00. We also provided readers with quite a few more low-risk entries. These to build a long term position with remainder runners (see our quad exit strategy) for the long term hold.

Silver, Weekly Chart, The second leg:

Now that we have the first successful leg with substantial profit-taking completed, we find a high likelihood for continuation into a possible second leg. After a sideways zone from September this year we see a progression from the lows of this sideways channel through its range. After that a possible initiation through a breakout of its upper bounds into a second leg.

Our projections are extremely conservative since typically second legs are the longest legs and as such a doubling in price from here is more than likely.



Silver, Daily Chart, May be like this:

It isn’t quite clear how the painted scenario of much higher prices will unfold from a small time frame perspective. We drew the most likely scenario above on the daily chart. This, that or the other entries will be posted in our free Telegram channel in real-time. The emphasis here is on the general probability. It points from a seasonality perspective to typically higher prices in December and January for this commodity. Typical year end hiccups especially this year can not distract the professional from the larger picture.

Silver, Monthly Chart, Where are we heading?

Where thinking in extremes starts making sense is in not limiting projections, if reasonable substantiated factors speak for extended moves. These can have beyond the typical three-legged extensions a fourth and a fifth leg as well. Here it is important to add to technical tools fundamental analysis.

Why extremes in this one rare instance are useful is that exits are way more meaningful than entries. Realistic target assessment is the key factor of profitability.

One fundamental fact about Silver easily overlooked is its rarity in comparison versus other precious metals in terms of “loss”. What we mean by “loss” is that in terms of weight there is about twice as much mined Silver in bullion in the world than Gold. But the rate of “loss” due to industrial use is much grander than Golds. From over fifty billion troy ounces ever mined, less than five billion remain. It is important to keep that in mind when comparing the estimate of about forty times Silver in weight being still unmined in comparison to Gold.

In short, due to the high industrial demand for Silver and its high “loss” rate (it is hard to recycle), it qualifies from a long-term view as a permabull´s friend. It is this “loss” rate that can make it more and more precious over time.

Silver the permabull
