Will Silver Prices Hit New Lows In 2015?

David Busick

There’s been quite a bit of volatility with Silver prices. After a nice rally into early 2015, the past 2 weeks has ushered in some price weakness. And this begs the question: Do lower prices loom for Silver in 2015?

Back in August 2014, I wrote an article projecting lower Silver prices. In that post, I used my custom Fibonacci method to calculate probable Silver price targets over the short and long term. The short-term targets were both hit and closed.

It’s the longer term target that deserves our attention here. My projected target was 14.095. A nice call, considering that Silver futures were trading at 19.395. That represented a pullback of 27.3 percent and seemed somewhat of a stretch. But was it a stretch? Not so much.

In the chart below, you can see the target of 14.095 was missed by 6 cents with a current low being put in at 14.155.

Now let’s move in for a tighter view and see if the 14.095 target still looks valid. In the below chart, you’ll see a daily, short term target of 18.42 has been hit and so far rejected 4 times. On Friday, February 6th, 2015 price pulled back to and bounced off of the support area of 16.69 – 16.41. Watch these two levels on silver futures. A close below 16.41 will give us a new short-term downside target.

Silver futures retreat from the March 2014 high to the December 2014 low was (36.18%).

I still maintain my call for lower silver prices.  Thanks for reading and remember to always use a stop when trading.
