Above, is silver priced in oil from 1983 to now. Price has moved in a large channel before it broke out at the end of 2014. This is really significant given the length of time involved.

Like gold, silver has fallen sharply in the U.S. dollar’s slipstream. From a high of around $17.30 in June, the precious metal has fallen to a low so far of $15.20. The $2.10 slide might not sound much in nominal terms but represents a sizeable 12.1% decline in percentage terms. Sentiment towards both precious metals are very bearish at the moment.
As expected, gold made nice three waves of correction back to projected 1250 support level, but there can be room for deeper and more complex correction down to around 61,8% Fib. retracement and 1245 level.
