    For those who don't remember, Alessio Rastani is the guy from the BBC trader interveiw where he (in)famously states ' Governments don't rule the world, Goldman Sacks rules the world'

    http://forums.silverstackers.com/message-217722.html#p217722

    Anyway here is his take on PM. Being as he is a trader it is purely technical analysis, so will likely be talked down by many on here, but an interesting watch anyway.

    The video is here. http://www.leadingtrader.com/11/gold-and-silver-update-why-i-am-not-buying-silver/

    So, to boil this down in a nutshell (and don't misunderstand, I like Alessio, he's got big kohunas for what he did/said on BBC), but what he's really saying is "Silver isn't something I'm interested in until hit passes $37.44".

    Or, to put this another way...

    It's cheap now, so I'm going to wait for it to increase in price so I buy less for my fiat, and THEN go buy it.

    o_O

    Bugger that, buy now, cry later (as per a certain sig on these forums) :)

    He's a trader so i guess he's looking for confirmation before going long?... or short

    I think it's fair to say his analysis is useless to me.

    He's a trader, not an investor. He has better short term opportunies then trading silver. Traders don't like having their money sitting idle :)

    Notice how resistance levels aren't?
    How many times have you seen articles that proclaim this or that broke key resistance levels.

    Silver and gold are going up when people lose faith in the US economy.
    It's going to be sudden and all these chart watchers are going to be caught completely off guard.
    What will move gold and silver is going to be socio-political, not technical.
    And these guys don't have a candlestick graph to measure future political and financial action (although some probably think they do).
    Look, if QE3 was announced tomorrow, how many of these technical reports would count for nothing as the price surged up "breaking key resistance levels".

    You've bought gold and silver because you are sold on the story.
    So sit on it and watch your exit plan.
    You do have an exit plan, right?
    I mean, more than just "I'll sell when the price is high".
    That's what being long is about.

    He's a paper market trader. I wouldn't think he'd touch the physical, so his analysis is largely moot.

    Even so, he's looking for capital gains in the paper market - completely different core axiom to a silver stacker.

    Mind you, as a paper trader he should well know how heavily manipulated the silver market is, so the fact he has even entertained the notion of paper silver investment has me curious.

    Yeah, that's a fair and good call actually.

    Goes to show how a different perspective can place different emphasis on when to buy or not, eh?
