Silver Ready To Breakout – Technicals And Fundamentals Suggest $50/oz In Early Autumn
by Tyler Durden
Gold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,826.00, EUR 1,264.19, GBP 1,121.14 per ounce. Gold fix was higher than yesterday’s AM Fix which was USD 1,791.00, EUR 1243.49, GBP 1097.56 per ounce.
Gold remains less than 5% from its record nominal high of $1,913.50 per ounce while silver remains nearly 20% below its record nominal high just below $50/oz.
Gold has stolen the limelight from silver in recent weeks with gold reaching a series of new record nominal highs.
But silver has been quietly consolidating after the sharp falls seen at the end of April and in early May when many claimed the silver ‘bubble’ had burst.
Media coverage of silver remains nearly nonexistent which is bullish from a contrarian perspective.
Technically silver is looking better by the day and is now trading not far above its 50 and 100 day moving averages (see chart above).
Today the 50 day moving average is trading at $38.70/oz and the 100 day moving average is trading at $38.74/oz. The 50 DMA is rising after recent price gains and looks set to cross the 100 DMA in the coming days. This will be a bullish technical signal.
