Silver comment

31 December: 2020 was a solid year for Silver in more than one way. It is how it behaved again as a mature asset class following the first Covid shock in March. Price from open to close in 2020 is up 48%. Silver dropped sharply again just before Christmnas closing unchanged from the week before and recoved in the final week to close the year at 26.34 and in line with the other precious metals. Even though technicals look a little soft for Silver right this moment, the medium term weekly trend looks very strong and seems to be the leading indicator. We need to see bearish divergence in the weekly time scale to start worrying about a top. Strong Hold, no change.

24 December: The unchanged weekly close just before Christmas with all timescales in fairly neutral risk weight is a positive signal. We had a slight preview last week of what's coming when silver rallied sharply above the 27.00 handle before dropping nearly 10% again. Because Silver is a higher volume speculative commodity we may expect a sharp rally into the higher 30's followed by a sharp correction based on potential medium term bearish divergence in Weekly timescale. A 40% advance from present levels is an objective we have held for some time and it looks this market is building up for just that. No Change.

Silver risk analysis - Quarterly chart since 1971

31 December 2020:
Silver price peaks as seen in the quarterly risk weight chart below tend to show risk levels well into the higher 90's. Current level of 79, in an uptrend, can be expected to see further follow through. As Silver is volatile and almost never ends a period at the high, Dec 31 2020 being an exception, a major price advance during Q1 2021 is unlikely to produce a significant overbought condition any time soon. For example: if Silver reached $40 and closes the quarter at $37, risk weight only increases to 85. If Silver rallies to 50 and closes at 42 risk weight actually declines to 77 on the quarterly time scale. The advance that started in 2016 has some way to go.

Gold Silver analysis

31 December: The Gold Silver ratio closed the year at 71.70, a net fall of 15% against the January open at 84.50. Looking at the Weekly medium term trend the 125-130 peak now seems a long way back with our initial potential target of 64 rather nearby. RSI, MACD and Stoichastic remain in longer term downtrends providing support for our slight overweight silver position. No Change.

24 December: The Gold/Silver ratio briefly dropped below 70 again, since the earlier drop during September, as Silver enjoyed a very sharp rally early last week. We strongly hold on to our long term forecast to at least reach a more modern times equilibrium between 40 and 60 and with both higher gold and silver prices against all major fiat currencies.
