From the 10 year chart of silver (above), silver appears to have a repeatable pattern. A period of of consolidation (trading is range-bound with slight uptrend) is followed by a parabolic upward move, then a sharp correction.
Start of the parabolic move is roughly two-thirds of the previous ones. Parabolic moves tend to start in September-October and peak in March-April, on a two year cycle (?). Each cycle is more pronounced than the one before.
Will the next aha! moment for silver start in September 2012 ?
