On January 11th, we expected the US Dollar to top as Sentiment was uber-bullish, which would lead to a nice rally for Gold, Silver, and (Mining) stocks. That day, the USD index closed at 81.35, Silver at $29.89, and Gold at $1,641. (Click HERE for the article)
Today, the USD stands at 78.90, Silver at $33.89 and Gold at $1,733.50, so we got what we expected.

Now let's see where we are today.

If the pattern holds, we should be about halfway the "Bull trap", as many will view this as the Return to "normal".
If the pattern doesn't hold, and silver blasts through $40, it's probably on it's way to the all-time high. In that case, the next big move would be to the upside, with potential targets of $70 and potentially tripple digit silver prices.
As long as the pattern holds, I would be careful if silver hits $38.
