Strategies for Correcting Silver – One Approach

Mega rallies are followed by big drawdowns in a bull market.

That’s how it is.

Anyone who doesn’t understand this will be made to understand it. The market doesn’t care about one’s emotions.

In today’s bull markets, a volatile entity like Silver can correct by 9 $ an ounce within a few days. Let’s accept the fact that this has happened, because it has.

So how does one play correcting Silver?

A bull market ceases to be a bull market below a certain price level as per Dow theory. That hasn’t happened yet, so a trader, in my opinion, still needs to play the long side. Of course with a stop. And not any odd stop. A risk-profile tuned stop with trigger activation, and with a large difference between trigger price and limit price. This is because Silver is moving very big either way currently within a very short time span, and if trigger and limit aren’t separated by a huge gap, they can both be overshot and the poor trader can be left hanging in the losing trade, holding on to his pants.

The investor, on the other hand, is waiting patiently for Silver to reach a certain level of correction before buying bullion. Opinions vary what this level should be. My opinion is that a 61.8% Fibonacci correction level should suffice for entry. I think that’s happening now, so if Silver stabilizes at or near the current price (40.84 $ an ounce), that would be my price for a medium term entry.

Of course I could be all wrong.

I like to make mistakes, because they are the best teachers. Better that any professors or theoreticians.
