Silver futures in the December contract is trading higher for the 2nd consecutive trading session ending the week on a positive note up 40 cents at 18.20 an ounce after settling last Friday in New York at 17.57 up about 63 cents for the week hitting a four week high.

I am recommending a bullish position if prices close above 18.00 while then placing the stop loss under the 10-day low standing at 17.18 as the risk is around $2,050 per 2 mini contracts plus slippage and commission as this market looks to test the contract high at 19.75 in my opinion.
