Some silver charts to ponder. This first chart is only 6 months in time but does show silver neither overbought nor oversold on a daily basis.  Please note the MACD at the bottom, it has now crossed over into a buy signal, the “hook” has formed!.  We also see a daily “golden cross” of the 50 day moving average crossing over the 200 day moving average on March 21.

This 2nd chart is 2 years and and calculated weekly as opposed to daily, it shows the nearly 18 month consolidation after the run from $15 to $30.

This last chart is 5 years, and weekly rather than daily.  The MACD’s here crossed over in Oct, chopped, and now firmly on a buy signal.
