Silver: Expect Major Rally By End Of February: Here’s Why
Silver will make a move in price in excess of its total annual seasonal gain over the coming two months.
The chart below shows the average moves in silver prices in the course of a calendar year over the past 69 years.
As the chart illustrates, on average silver tends to post its strongest price gains early in the year until peaking close to the end of February. This rapid advance begins in mid-December (blue arrow). Thereafter, the price typically retreats again.
The strong seasonal advance is very likely driven by purchases from the manufacturing industry. Many industrial silver processors/users place the bulk of their purchase orders at the beginning of the new financial year once annual planning has been completed and new orders can be booked.
If you purchase silver ahead of this phase – to be precise, in mid-December – you will buy at a fairly reasonable price from a seasonal perspective and stand to benefit from the strong seasonal rally.
