Denial

"The steady rise in ETF holdings is encouraging as it relates to the long-term silver outlook. Despite significant gyrations in prices, holdings haven't fluctuated nearly as much, suggesting that investors that buy these products are holding the metal for the long term and with conviction." -Silver ETF Holdings Reach Record - IndexUniverse November 20, 2012

In essence, dogma has been maintained while prices have trended lower. Conventional contrarian perspective will tell you this typically does not end favorably for investors - regardless of size and sophistication.

Should the comparative continue to be prescient, silver's most recent rally will fail ~ the 61.8 fibonacci retracement level. This level could also be used as an overall proxy for risk appetites in the currency and equity markets.
