Silver – daily and weekly charts

Silver - Poor man gold as some calls it. Silver is one of gold best sentiment indicators. Silver is more volatile then gold, sometimes tend to lead while other times just follow gold. Other then serving as a sentiment indicator for gold, silver is a tradable item by itself.

From a Technical point of view it seems to me that silver (like gold) has just completed an important secondary bottom which is higher then the June bottom. This is good and bullish for both gold and silver. Currently I expect both silver and gold to hold their September bottoms and head higher and retest the diagonal resistance line.

As always, expect and assume the unexpected while trading, at the market place nothing is sure other then fees and commissions.

Silver charts annotated with simple annotations which are self explaining.

Refer to previous posts for more silver charts and Fibonacci levels. As of now no Elliot waves count update.

Gold, Fibonacci Set – Update

If gold will find it way up sooner then later and the 570's USD levels will prove to be an important secondary bottom then the Fibonacci lines on both Spot and Futures gold charts will act as short term support and resistance levels. I'm posting these two charts annotated with diagonal minor uptrend lines.

RBC, 21.09.2006, Moscow 18:45:08.The Bank of Russia intends to increase the volume of gold metals in Russia's gold and foreign currency reserves, the Bank's First Deputy Chairman Alexei Ulyukayev told the State Duma budget committee today. The share of gold in the country's gold and foreign currency reserves is 3 percent at present. If the volume of gold metals increases, still its share will not raise, he noted.

The gold price is now $550 per ounce, which is $80-90 lower than the record price. The metal prices are highly volatile at the moment, but the Central Bank has not imposed any limits on gold acquisition, he said.

Gold spot weekly chart

Look at the weekly chart below then look at the intraday chart at the previous post. Can you see the significance of the 570's for spot gold?

Strong resistance at 610's for spot gold but if gold will start climb back up – (I think it will) almost no resistance from 570's to 610's.

That's all for now.

Gold & Silver Commentary

The gold and silver charts looks ugly BUT the price of gold and silver is just around the 50 weekly moving average and some horizontal support. Fundamentals still in place. I think that the market is saturated with short side speculation. Long term conservative investors and physical buyers should use the opportunity and increase their regular purchases. See previous posts for relevant Fibonacci levels , take a look at CRB, CCI COMMODITY INDEX and Gold Indices - XAU , HUI - Fibonacci update

Gold and silver weekly charts

Dear readers, few short notes:

1) Seasonality, depressed sentiment and Euro relative weakness have all brought to an extremely short term oversold condition.

2) The silver chart looks better then the gold chart.

3) In my opinion global geopolitics along global economy developments certainly support higher gold price but not necessarily lower USD index.

4) Long term wave (III) trend lines are annotated on weekly charts, Intraday Cbot active contract is near Fibonacci support level.
