Silver markets initially pulled back during the week to show signs of weakness, but then rallied rather significantly to break above the $18 level on Friday. By doing so, this is a very bullish sign and it is likely that we will see a lot of resistance near the $19 level. In fact, we have seen the $19 level offer selling pressure than once, so to simply blow through there would be exceedingly difficult to happen. I believe that a pullback is a bit overdue, although one would have a hard time arguing with the bullishness of at least the precious metals part of silver.

I do believe that the $17 level should be rather supportive, and most certainly the $16 level as well. The biggest problem with move as of late is that silver depends on a lot of industrial man, something that does not seem to be highly likely at this point. Ultimately, this is a market that I think we are going to see a lot of volatility in, and clearly buying all the way up here is a bit difficult to do as it is stretched. That being said, the market will be difficult to short, so I think more than anything else you probably have an opportunity to buy silver at cheaper levels, and that is something that longer-term investors will be looking at with great interest. Do not use a lot of leverage in this market, that would be a great way to lose money at this point.
