What’s keeping silver prices from moving higher?

From Safehaven: The Commerce Department says the  U.S. economy expanded 3.2 percentduring the first quarter, the best beginning to a year since 2015 and considerably better than the consensus for 2.5 percent. And while gold prices were volatile in Friday's session after stronger-than-expected headline GDP numbers came out, it's an unexpected development that could be a game-changer for precious metals.

Inflation-adjusted, is Silver cheaper or more expensive than it was a century ago?

long and stacked silver bars
From Mike Hammer: Since we've already given our current view on silver, how about we let someone else give you their view? Among technicians, there are short, medium, and long-term perspectives as well as all the different methods of analyzing data. Here we tend to favor simpler methods that give results without too much mind-bending (so we haven't quite fully embraced Elliot Waves, for one example).

Silver News: Will the price continue to move lower?

Silver
From The Gold Enthusiast: Precious metals investors have no doubt been alarmed at silver's (and gold's) recent drops.  Just a few short months ago, there was lots of enthusiasm about "the next leg up" and how silver was close to all-time highs in the silver-to-gold ratio.  Seemed like every talking head on TV was on high alert for increasing silver prices.

Is This High Gold-Silver Ratio Sustainable?

From Allen Sykora: The rise in the gold-silver ratio is unsustainable and will correct, says Richard Baker, editor of the Eureka Miner's Report. This ratio measures how many ounces of silver it takes to buy an ounce of gold. A rising number means underperformance by silver, and vice-versa. Baker points out that the silver has hit levels not seen since November 2008 during the financial crisis. The ratio was 86.6 Thursday, well above its 10-year average of 66.2. "This suggests silver is very, very cheap relative to the yellow metal, at least in historical terms," Baker says. "The gold-to-copper ratio, although not extreme, is also elevated considering the safe-haven demand for gold has declined from earlier this year."

Why silver has significant upside potential

long and stacked silver bars
From Clive Maund: There were several developments last week that taken together suggest that the short-term bearish scenario set out in the Gold and Silver Interim update about a week ago is not going to materialize and instead that the original grander scenario described in the last full Silver Market update is going to prevail. This is a relief because any further downside would have ruined the giant positive pattern completing on the long-term charts, especially that completing in gold.

Silver continues to test an important level

long and stacked silver bars
From Christopher Lewis: Silver markets went back and forth during the trading session on Monday, as we continue to test the $15 level for major support. At this point, the market should show plenty of importance to the $15 level as it is a large, round, psychologically important figure. However, given enough time it's likely that we will find that area important enough to bring in a lot of value hunting. If it does not, that would be a very negative sign indeed. That could have market participants heading for the exits, sending silver down to the $14.50 level. That could be a rather violent action.

long and stacked silver bars
From Jim Wyckoff: Gold and silver prices are posting moderate corrective gains in early-morning dealings Friday, following the sharp losses suffered Thursday. Overnight, gold did drop to a three-week low, while silver hit a three-month low. Some mild U.S. inflation data just released is also helping out the precious metals market bulls. April gold futures were last up $6.10 an ounce at $1,295.90. May Comex silver was last up $0.122 at $15.09 an ounce.

U.S. Silver production at the lowest level in more than 70 years

long and stacked silver bars
From Steve St. Angelo: With the latest release by the USGS, silver production in the U.S. is now the lowest in more than 70 years.  We have to go all the way back until the year after World War II ended to see U.S. silver production less than it was in 2018.  While many reasons can be attributed to the decline, the main factors are falling ore grades and mine economics.
