An In-Depth look at a Major Cycle in Spot Silver

Some people debate the existence of cycles in financial markets. They are certainly not regular, and come and go for unknown reasons. Here I look into two pretty large alleged cycles in silver and we can track them over the coming weeks to verify if they are really there or just illusions!

Saturday Morning Chart Update

A sudden turn in the metals and miners yesterday has set us up for an interesting Monday. Then, with August contract and options expiration, a GDP guesstimate and the BLSBS all later in the week, the stage is set for considerable volatility. Before the week begins, here's a look at where we stand.
