Silver is currently trading at key resistance levels. See below, a six-year silver chart (all charts generated at fxstreet.com):
On the chart, I have drawn a significant upward sloping resistance line (red line). Silver has now reached that line, trying to breach it and stay above it. It has also reached the top resistance line of a big flag pattern. If the silver price gets through these resistance lines, and stays above them, then it is likely to continue its rise, but likely in a more accelerated manner.
These resistance areas can be very tricky. Price can often react in a violent manner downwards; however, there are no certainties.
What silver will do at these resistance areas is a short-term problem. From a longer point of view, it is clear to me that silver is going much higher. Eventually, it will successfully break out of the big flag and spike upwards past the $50 level.
In a previous article, I have shown how closely silver is following a past pattern on the gold chart. That comparison also suggests that the silver price will eventually successfully breach the resistance lines indicated above. Below, is the chart from that comparison:
On the charts (silver is the top one and gold is the bottom one), I have marked the two patterns (1 to 5) that are similar on the gold and silver chart. For more details and explanation of the two patterns, please read that full article. If the silver pattern continues to follow the gold pattern, then the silver price would pass the resistance lines indicated in the first chart, and eventually challenge the $50 level.
