Two Benchmarks For Silver Bulls

November 2, 2016

The futures did everything we’d asked of them and more, generating a fresh bullish impulse leg on the hourly chart in the process. The next bullish benchmark lies at 18.940, equal to an ‘external’ peak recorded October 3 on the way down. The futures will need to exceed that number on the next thrust to re-energize the intraday charts.

Rather than get too far ahead of ourselves predicting the next move, let’s see how it unfolds. If a rally like the hypothetical one I’ve sketched (see inset) easily exceeds its ‘d’ target, that would imply there’s ample buying power to push this vehicle above not only the external peak at 18.940, but the more daunting one above it at 19.770. How easily this is accomplished, assuming it happens at all, can tell us whether the rally is just a bear tease or the real-McCoy resumption of the 2016 bull market in bullion.
