Today James Turk told King World News that the price of silver just had an important breakout. Take a look…

February 16 (King World News) – James Turk:  As you know, Eric, I have near-term targets of $2080 for gold and $26 for silver. I targeted those prices on my expectation that their ratio would fall to 80.

This chart of the March silver contract shows closing prices only, so the intraday price swings have been removed. By focusing on the closing price, the noise arising from the often frenetic activity of day-traders and scalpers that causes intraday volatility is eliminated. 

Silver is not yet out of the woods, but it may soon be if this new uptrend gains momentum, which I expect it will because silver is so undervalued.
