Metals Mania, but has Silver lost its hype?

Metals Mania, but has Silver lost its hype?

In 2020, Silver had a legendary rise from its low during the peak of the Coronavirus lockdowns in March – up over 140%. Analysts (including me) attempted to justify its price and separate its strong correlation with Gold by arguing that Biden’s climate change policies will boost Solar Panels’ use, which extensively uses Silver. This may be a catalyst in the longer term.

However, in the short to medium term, Silver is unlikely to be affected by this catalyst. With a new US President in the seat, alongside a decrease in Gold’s price, what are we going to see in the price of Silver?

From September till the present, Silver has been fluctuating between $22.40 and $27.30 reliably. We can see clean candles to the downside from the $27 mark, predicting strong moves to the downside if it rejects that strong psychological level.

The Gold /Silver Ratio reached an all-time earlier this year when Silver’s price collapsed to $11.94 when investors flew to equities out of fear of market fluctuations. The  Gold/Silver Ratio is a ratio of how much silver ounces must buy a silver ounce of Gold.

What exactly is a SPAC?

This year, a word that has entered the vocabulary of many investors is SPAC, short for Special Purpose Acquisition Company. Yet, for some, what a SPAC exactly is and for what it is suitable, remains a mystery. Since emerging in the 1990s, SPACs have primarily remained a fringe financial product. That is, until last year when their popularity exploded in the US. In 2020, SPACs raised more than US $82 billion. Not to be outdone, 2021 eclipsed this value by April and has since gone on to raise more than US $120 billion. In contrast, SPACs raised a comparatively tiny US $13.6 billion in 2019.

How Do You Build A Position With Pyramiding?

As a trader, it’s a general rule of thumb that we should always be looking to maximise potential returns (per unit of risk) with each transaction. We should always be looking to squeeze as much out of the market as we can. There are times when this can occur by simply letting the trade run its course. However, sometimes market conditions align perfectly for savvy traders to “press the trade” or “pyramid” into the trade.
