Silver Breaks Towards Upside of Longer Term Chart

by John Knobel

Silver at its best month in a year jumping +9.4% over the last 30 days to over $18 per ounce. Precious metals prices look set to outperform stock markets as the US Federal Reserve is predicted to shift into a lower interest rate cycle;

Historically precious metals including Gold, Silver and Platinum benefit from stock marketĀ volatility;Ā  the recent stock market volatility and looking back at the last US interest rate easing cycle 10-13 years ago we can indicate that stocks and precious metals may move higher together once stock market volatility settles down and markets adjust into a lower interest rate cycle.
