Silver Prices About to Pop
Source: Bob Kirtley, SK Options Trading (11/19/10)
"The next few days could be electric. . ."
We know it has been a rough couple of days, however, the silver price showed its true strength Friday as it bounced back to close in New York at $26.93/oz., registering a gain of $1.30/oz or 5.07%. The recovery began in Sydney—three cheers for the Aussie gold bugs—and carried through in Hong Kong and Singapore—three cheers there, too. It then went on to London managing to push prices higher. Well done to all the buyers out there.
The stage is set for some fireworks either way you slice it. The shorters may give it one last thumping in the hope of getting their positions covered before silver rockets, as well as to satisfy their year-end bonus aspirations. The thirst of the longs has not yet been slaked and appears to be building. The next few days could be electric, as the possibility exists that that the shorters could capitulate and be forced to buy silver at the very same time as the Longs are buying. In a tiny market place where the physical supply is said to be rather tight, this could push prices to new record levels. And that is just what we will think will happen. Be warned though, we have been wrong before.
Taking a quick peek at the above chart, we can see that just prior to the COMEX options expiry date on November 23rd, the shorters are doing their best to drive silver prices down. However, as the price neared $25.00/oz., buyers came in and bagged a bargain. We are looking for the RSI to hit 90 as silver prices take off from here. The STO is forming a nice crossover here, which we interpret as another positive sign.
The table below is a snapshot of some of the silver producers and reveals just how well they fared Friday. As we can see, there are some jolly good gains being made.
Our old favorite, Silver Wheaton is also playing a good game and doing wonders for our trading account.
