While Silver has not managed to push the boundaries of $28, there is a potential for the precious metal to break out and take over the $30 mark. Looking deeper into the markets, there is clear rising inflation to blame, as well as plans by influential nations to bolster their infrastructure.
Additionally, supply for Silver is starting to wane, and a few other factors could send silver into a short squeeze and onto much more impressive prices even beyond $30.
The price action of Silver seems to be building its base below the $28 region before attempting a move higher, possibly breaking out of $30. With rising inflation as well as infrastructure plans by various large countries to boost their economies, a commodity super-cycle is in the works.
With talk of a supply crunch in the Silver market currently, I expect industrial and investment demand for physical Silver to drive prices up significantly, with Silver crushing the $30 level soon and going on a short-squeeze which may propel prices towards $50 eventually, says the PrimeXBT analyst, Kim Chua.
The Silver chart has been in the consolidating stage of a very strong uptrend as well as a bull flag since April 2020, with a break of $30 potentially able to send this up with a $18.50 price objective towards $48.50 – $50.
