Analysis Of The Long-Term Silver Chart Suggests Significantly Higher Prices

In a previous article, I wrote about the shift to measuring wealth in ounces instead of Dollars. In that same article, I expressed my opinion that I consider silver bullion to be one of the best current opportunities to increase one’s gold ounces.

Here, I would like to point out some interesting signals on the long-term chart for silver.

Below, is a long term chart for silver:

On the chart, I have highlighted two fractals (or patterns), marked 1 to 3, which appear similar. What makes these two fractals so special, is the similarity of the circumstances in which they exist.

There was a significant peak in the Dow (1973 and 2007) between point 1 and 2 of both fractals. Both peaks in the Dow came about 7 years after the peak in the Dow/Gold ratio. After point 2, on both fractals, the oil price made a significant peak (1974 and 2008), about 8 years after the peak in the Dow/Gold ratio.

Thanks to this similarity in events, as well as the similarity in sequence, I was able to identify the great possibility for significantly higher silver prices, back in October of 2010. This was a very clear signal that higher silver prices were coming, and that is exactly what we got, when silver moved to $49. However, this run is not over yet. The move from $17, when silver broke out of the triangle (at point 3 of the second fractal) to $49 was just the first part of the move. In my opinion the biggest and best part of this move is still ahead. In various previous articles on silver, I have presented a lot of evidence to support my opinion for higher silver prices over the coming years.

Based on the fractals on the chart, we could still have about two years before we could get a top like we had in 1980. That is 14 years after the Dow/Gold ratio top (beginning of 1966 to the beginning of1980 vs the end of 1999 to the end 2013).
