We've asked Michael Seery of SEERYFUTURES.COM to give our INO readers a weekly recap of the Futures market. He has been Senior Analyst for close to 15 years and has extensive knowledge of all of the commodity and option markets.
Michael frequently appears on multiple business networks including Bloomberg news, Fox Business, CNBC Worldwide, CNN Business, and Bloomberg TV. He is also a guest on First Business, which is a national and internationally syndicated business show.
The silver price for the March contract settled last Friday in New York at 16.13 an ounce while currently trading at 16.76 up about 60 cents for the trading week due to the weakness in the U.S. dollar also coupled with a higher than expected CPI inflation report sending silver prices near a two-week high. I'm not involved in silver & if you have read my previous blogs, you understand that longer-term I am bullish silver as I think its extraordinarily cheap and if you're not a trader but an investor I still think prices will head into the $20 level later this year. Silver prices are still slightly below their 20 & 100-day moving average as this market really has been choppy over the last six months with very little trend. I think that will change as I will not take a short position as I do think the downside is very limited. The U.S. dollar hit a three-year low this week as that is helping keep a floor under silver prices and many other sectors, but for the bullish momentum to continue prices have to crack the 17.50 level as the volatility is starting to increase and should become more violent down the road. Growth in the United States and worldwide is coming back as the tax cuts will certainly push the economy higher in my opinion coupled with the fact of the massive infrastructure plan which is going to help lift commodities. I do think almost all asset classes will continue to climb as the stagnant economy is behind us the 1st time in nearly a decade.
