Gold, Silver Pullbacks in Perspective

"The current 15.6% gold decline, while considered a 'major' correction, is not out of the ordinary, particularly following the late summer spike. And after each big selloff, there was a price consolidation phase that in every instance led to higher prices."

If you're bullish about the long term for gold and silver, it's mouthwatering to watch them undergo a major correction after taking earlier profits that added to your deployable cash. For a little historical perspective on pullbacks, consider the following charts.

The current 15.6% gold decline, while considered a "major" correction, is not out of the ordinary, particularly following the late summer spike. And after each big selloff, there was a price consolidation phase that in every instance led to higher prices. The message: hold on, and buy the big dips.

Not surprisingly, silver's biggest corrections are larger than gold's. This is also true for the rebounds; they've been quite dramatic. If we apply the biggest three-month recovery of 44.3% to the current correction, that would take silver to $40.63. . .meaning we probably shouldn't expect $60 silver by year-end.

[There's still time to capitalize on the anomaly in the metals market that will bring amazing profits to those who are positioned for it. This report will help you get started. . .and offers a special bonus, too. Don't delay—the tide could turn very soon.]
