Why EWI’s Senior Metals Analyst says “I am glued to my computer.”

INCREDIBLE! Silver just printed 12.20, now surpassing the 50% retracement of its entire BULL market from the 4.01 area to highs near 21.35!

Silver has simply blown out to the downside in what is likely thin trading, with a low of 12.20 so far; be very careful here as these are exceptional market conditions. Just a guess, but I would not be surprised if a hedge fund is blowing out of positions.

Note that while gold is no where close to a 38% correction (near 738) of its entire BULL market from the 1999-2001 lows, silver has now gone below its 50% retracement. It is amazing silver is already at these levels; I expect a wild night (understatement of the year?). I may be back again several times as I am glued to my computer!

Note that GOLD so far is just below 800 and obviously testing important 770-800 support. I am wondering if silver is going to perhaps make a final blowout low tonight. There is NO way I can offer you any suggestions here, as it is simply too dangerous, but this is simply well, well beyond the bounds of anything that I would even consider volatile. This is a once every 5 or 10 year type of market in silver right now!
