Expect $30 silver price, then $50 soon after, by 2022 - Steve Penny

Kitco News

(Kitco News) - Once silver breaches $30, there would be minimal resistance keeping it back from hitting $50, said Steve Penny, publisher of The Silver Chartist report.

Penney told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News, that $50 or even $30 an ounce for silver is unlikely to happen by the end of the year.

"I think we're very close to a bottom here. There still is some downside risk to potentially $18 or $19 silver, but it's a high enough probability that we should be mentally prepared for. The big number to watch for is $30, I think everyone knows that," he said. "Once we get above $30, I think we do get to $50 fairly quick, probably within a quarter or two, because there's not much resistance between $30 and $50 silver. I'll say once we get through $30, I think $50 comes pretty quick, probably not in 2021, but perhaps in the first half of 2022."
