Turk – Something Big is About to Happen in Gold & Silver
February 27, 2012
With gold near $1,770 and silver near $35.50, today King World News interviewed James Turk out of Spain. Turk told King World News the fact that silver is not pulling back is an indication of how strong that market is right now. Here is what Turk had to say about the situation: “This is a great start to the week for the precious metals, Eric. We need to see this kind of strength to make sure both gold and silver follow through in the next few trading days to confirm the big gains from last week where gold climbed 2.9%, while silver soared 6.4%. It is remarkable to see both metals hold their gains with no profit taking. Clearly, traders see something big is about to happen, and so do I.”
James Turk continues:
“In this regard, I have mentioned several times my expectation that once resistance at $35 is taken out, silver will climb to $68-$70 in 2 to 3 months. I still expect that outcome, but of course, only time will tell. I thought it might be tough going for silver in the $35-$36 area, but maybe not based on the strength we are seeing today.
But regardless, Eric, I expect the silver price will begin to accelerate to the upside once $36 is hurdled. In many ways silver is positioned today like it was back in the summer of 2010. Long-time KWN listeners will remember the events from back then and my bullish views about silver. I feel the same way today.”
When asked about gold, Turk responded, “We spoke in the last blog about the relationship between oil and gold, which was up 2.9% last week. Oil jumped a remarkable 6.3%. With all the money printing going on in central banks around the world, not to even mention the growing tensions in the Middle East, oil looks ready to test its record highs some time this year….
