Silver prices have dipped below the $22.50 level on eight different occasions over the last 2-years. Prices are below that level once again. Silver hasn't been this low since July 2020. 

Key Silver Price Levels

  • To support a cycle bottom, silver needs to get back above $22.50 by month-end. 

  • Whereas a bearish continuation below $20.00 could trigger a temporary spike lower. 

Note- If prices were to drop further, I see significant support surrounding $18.00.

Temporary Decline

Given developing commodity shortages, I don't see silver staying low for long under any scenario. 

Takeaway on Silver

As long silver as prices stay below $22.50, more downside is possible. 

If silver slips below $20.00, it would likely be temporary as shortages would put an immediate floor under price (real physical investment bars, bullion, and coins vanishing because of cheap paper price).

The first step in establishing a bottom would be a finish back above $22.00.

fine silver

Silver continues to wind and grind its way toward a major multi-year low. The chart pattern is increasingly clear for those with the proper perspective. Unfortunately, over the short-run, silver is doing what it tends to do best: frustrate the majority of investors into abandoning the sector, just at the wrong moment.

As in the other major lows which have occurred over the subsequent decade, many will be caught unprepared for the next wave of the advance when it occurs, due to the human tendency to only follow markets which are moving sharply higher. In reality, the best time to be following and investing in a market is when it is grinding into a support zone, so as to be positioned when the next wave manifests.

This is exactly where the silver market finds itself today.

Silver Retesting 7-Year Base

The most important point to remember about the present silver cycle is that the precious metal is currently retesting a 7-year base breakout which occurred just over one year ago.

The slightly slanted 7-year base can be seen clearly on the long-term chart above (blue). Note the grinding-type of price action which featured many overlapping waves beginning in 2013 when silver fell below $24 per ounce. Lower… higher… lower… higher… and finally lower to the 2020 Coronavirus panic-induced bottom near $11 per ounce. These overlapping waves with little to no net change in price are classic characteristics of a long-term basing pattern in technical analysis.

Following the Coronavirus selloff, as...

Silver Price Forecast FAQ

What are the key factors that influence silver price forecasts?

  • Current economic conditions
  • Strength of the US dollar
  • Gold/silver price ratio
  • US monetary policy
  • Geopolitical events
  • Industrial demand
  • Jewelry and silverware demand
  • Silver supply & mining costs

Do silver price forecasts apply to all countries?

The price of silver remains mostly the same regardless of which country you are in. This is because the price of silver is pegged to the US dollar. Therefore an accurate silver price prediction will similarly apply to silver prices in all countries.

How does the strength of the US dollar impact silver prices?

In general silver has an inverse relationship to the US dollar. When the dollar becomes weaker, silver prices tend to go up. This is why the state of the economy and central bank monetary policy play such an important role in forecasting silver prices.

How is the gold/silver ratio used to evaluate future silver prices?

The gold-to-silver ratio is used to determine how many ounces of silver it takes to buy an ounce of gold. When this ratio is under 40, silver is determined to be overvalued. When this ratio is over 75, the price of silver is considered undervalued and therefore may be a good time to buy.

The gold/silver ratio is higher now (over 90) since the 2008 financial crisis. It is not surprising, therefore, why so many silver price forecasts are predicting a historic rally in silver prices. It is when this ratio reverses that silver prices take off and outperform gold.

Is silver too volatile for the average investor?

Silver goes through periods of volatile ups and downs but also periods of quiet just like other commodities. Silver does, however, have a history of being much more volatile than gold. This is due to its much smaller market and lower market liquidity. Those investing in silver should therefore be prepared for this volatility. The most important focus when investing in silver should not be the short-term but longer-term trends and forecasts.

Can I hold silver in an IRA account?

Silver, and gold, can be held in an IRA account. However, be sure to first reach out to a reputable broker, understand the guidelines, and be sure to use an approved depository. This can be an excellent strategy for protecting your retirement from a volatile economy.

What is the highest price silver has ever reached?

Silver reached $48.70 per ounce on April 28, 2011. This is the highest price silver has ever reached.
