Today one of the most street smart pros in the business spoke with King World News about what is happening in the silver market. There is also an update on what the commercials have been busy doing as the price of silver has fluctuated.

Also of importance…
King World News note: Below you can see the commercial hedgers position in the silver market market. Note that commercial hedgers have been significantly reducing their short positions on the recent decline in the price of silver (see multi-year SentimenTrader chart below).
The commercial shorts still remain at a level that raises concern. Again, that does not mean that the price of silver cannot head significantly higher in the short-term.
It is also important to note that the bullish sentiment in silver has come off rather sharply, although it is still not in the “excessive pessimism” category.
There was not much movement in terms of the commercial short position in the gold market, which remain very large. It will be very interesting to see how the gold and silver markets trade in the coming weeks and months.
