Just to make sure I have a proof there is no long term capping:
SILVER is exactly on its 2001-2013 exponential price rise CURVE median, represented in this semi log plot as straight line:
Movements above and below exponential price rise return to the exponential price raise MEDIAN, what we see since 2011 as well. They can overshoot to below, as in 2008, but so far the MEDIAN of the fork after 2011 deviation (overbought) has withstood (on parallel line slightly below it) 4 monthly attempts to break it. There could be more, but as time goes, the target moves higher.
Today this parallel support line has value of 29,40. That is the bottom which in my opinion should not be taken out ( on monthly basis) in February as long as fundamentals ( USG debt ) show no sign of rapid improvement (stabilization/reduction). I have to check if relative value of USG debt to GDP has better correlation with gold prices or as good as the absolute value in USD. It could be so, as it makes sense in terms of debt serviceability /instability risk.
So my claims of nonexistent long term capping as it can not force the fundamentals is supported by this simple chart, and even medium term capping looks more like normal correction. Daily trade tricks happen as they should , but, short of silver crossing 44 USD in Feb -March ( which I do not believe will happen as the resolution of debt issues and 2011 correction is around June-August 2013) there seems no major reasons to see INCREASED or ACCELERATED systemic problems compared to how they are perceived by majority of investors. Until then, its all the normal short term future guessing game with even shorter term trading games.
