All the signs point to a top in Silver. The old high of US $49.45 per troy ounce recorded in 1980 squeeze was marginally broken over the weekend before rejecting this level sharply.
There was a massive spike in volume at the high looking at the longer term charts and this is a very strong sign of exhaustion.
Over history, all blow off trends, ie strong vertical trends end with a ¼ year time expansion, ie 90 day vertical drive from the last swing low. (gann theory) The last low here was Jan 28 and Silver has run straight up in that 90 day window over the weekend past. Timing was the last box to be ticked here and this is a perfect sell set up.
We also know that once we get a major high in place we get strong price rejection and considerable volatility. A sharp sell off like we experienced yesterday dropping from $49.5 to $43.5 (15%) in 24 hr window is what normally occurs at major peaks.
All the boxes are ticked here, exhaustion, volume, price rejection and timing.
Gold, although not half the bubble of silver has a very similar price set up at the moment and is vulnerable here also.
