Gold keeps crashing. Ditto for silver. So the question is: Are we near a bottom yet?
I can’t tell you precisely what the low will be.
No one can. All I can tell you is that …
1. Timing-wise, we are very close to what could be the final low for precious metals in their two-year long interim bear market.
2. Price-wise, we are also very close. As I’ve told you before, long-term support levels come into play at the $1,170 to $1,200 area in gold.
In silver, the long-term support levels are scaled in from $17.70 down to $16.33. Silver’s now lagging just behind gold, but it’s almost there now too.
