I spent years counting out this big silver chart, with idealized counting methods. This never made sense until I accepted the fact that commodities run under a different idealized pattern. Why did the 2011 peak barely break to a new record high while gold soared well above its 1980 peak?
They are all diagonal waves structures which defy EW accepted logic but when we accept them as being normal wave structures of the diagonal kind, then it’s a different ball game. They are all connected with zigzags and they run in 30-year cycles which tracks the Cycle degree peaks and valleys. The entire wave 3 in Submillennium degree is a diagonal wave structure, so this silver chart will not smooth out any time soon.
Counting backward 60 years from the 2011 peak gives us another Cycle degree peak in 1950-1951! Count backward another 30 years to 1920 and that would be close to SC degree wave 1-2. 2011 to our present 2018 low is not 30 years no matter how much we try to twist the math. Supercycle degree wave three in metals will not arrive until 2041.
Silver has not finished any major bear market, as last week the COT reports sure did not favor silver and most of the other precious metals as well.
With the commercials turning net short on silver, there would be little hope for some huge silver bull market to materialize until these COT numbers start to shift into net long positions.
The worst thing we can see is the Kiss Of Death between the 50-day and 200-day moving averages is going to give us another “Death Cross”!
Silver is only 50 cents away from breaking a new bear market low! How does that work? Silver makes a new bear market low while gold is going to soar? NOT!
