We had a great week with markets consolidating recent gains and setting up for higher prices this coming week by the looks of things.
Silver Market Analysis
Technical analysis to forecast future price trends of silver and other precious metals, as well as the US Dollar and the Euro.
We don't hear much about gold and silver anymore on the news. This time last year you could not go 5 minutes without a TV or radio station talking about them. Why is this?
With less than three months left until the end of the year, let's do a quick recap. Silver may not be as shiny as gold, but it has been no pushover to the yellow metal.
Silver has certainly enjoyed an impressive run of late, catapulting nearly a third higher since mid-summer.

The past couple months investors have been focusing on the equities market. And rightly so with stocks running higher and higher.
Gold and silver are very close to entering the mania phase of this bull market.
This week may provide some trading opportunities for us if all goes well now that most traders are investors are all giddy about stocks again.
The week was interesting as we basically stalled out for the most part with many US indexes and stocks, especially coming onto the end of the week.

The new year started off with a bang with precious metals out-shining the competition. Is this a harbinger of things to come? We think so and we are not alone.
I think you will admit that we are in the middle of one major crazy financial mess.
Let's be frank here. I spend between 12 and 15 hours a day working in front of my computer screens watching markets and charts and reading news and reports from all over the world.
We are at the edge of a major economic crisis. Our monetary system is the underlying cause of this major crisis. The massive debt bubble created by our monetary system is about to burst.
Many investors pigeon-hole themselves as "inflationists" or "deflationists", where an inflationist is someone who expects more inflation over the years immediately ahead and a deflationist is someone who expects deflation.
A few weeks ago I wrote about how gold was starting to top and that everyone should expect a very sharp drop to the low $1600 area.
