May silver futures have traded both sides of $15.00 this morning. This is a critical support level after having pulled back $1.30 since posting a new swing high of $16.295 on February 20th. Technical traders are calling that swing high a “double top” now. The market correction is not limited just to silver, gold has had a big down side correction also as traders exit the “safe-haven” trade.
I view this correction in silver as a good long term buy opportunity. Silver is relatively cheap at $15.00 and clearly there is big support at this level. It is usually just a level on the chart that stops and reverses a market’s direction. I would expect that the market takes a breather at this level as the selling seems to be exhausted now. It’s still too soon to call a bottom in silver, so give it some time to base a new bottom.
