Extremely Important Levels To Watch
King World News note: As Naveen Nair from Citi noted, if the price of gold hurdles the last line of resistance at $2,009 it will surge to test the all-time high at $2,075. When it comes to silver, Michael Oliver at MSA Research says the silver market has already decisively broken out in terms of a positive momentum shift. For those keeping a close eye on the crude oil market, there has been a great deal of short covering on the recent price dip. This leaves the crude oil market in a much healthier position with a possible opportunity for the bulls to regain control and try to push the market back above $80.
Regardless, while it is possible that the crude oil market may continue to struggle if the global economy remains weak, a weaker global economy has historically ignited the price of both gold and silver. For example, and this is very concerning for the bullion bank shorts, when the Dow was chopped in half during the 1973-1974 bear market, the price of gold tripled in price, and the price of silver more than tripled! If you are accumulating physical silver, just be aware that it is possible the price may begin to runaway on the upside as it is approaching the final breakout Michael Oliver noted would launch the price of silver back to the all-time high of $50.
