With gold and silver strong today, King World News interviewed James Turk out of London. When asked about silver specifically Turk commented, “I like this flag pattern because when you breakout to the upside you reach your target in half the time it takes the flagpole to form. The flagpole formed over 36 trading days, so the next leg up to $30 will be over in less than 18 trading days.”
“The other thing Eric is that this time frame is not too far off from the three to four weeks window that I mentioned would take place when silver pierced $21.
We have been saying it is different this time because the ongoing accumulators of physical metal are right underneath the market. This aggressive buying is one of the key reasons why prices are poised to explode.
What I expect to see is a strong close today, and follow through tomorrow. That scenario requires more short covering tomorrow which is likely to happen anyway going into the weekend.
Even though silver is continuing to lead, gold will continue higher as well. Gold will eventually take out the previous high of $1,400. $1,400 is a pit stop on the way to $1,500.”
James Turk sent the above chart to go along with his comments. It shows the flag formation and the corresponding breakout he is discussing in this interview. When silver takes out the previous highs near $25, you should expect to see some serious fireworks to the upside. Gold will be in tow.
