Some say that the price of silver could be ready for a renaissance. If that’s true, it may be time to keep a close eye on silver exchange traded funds (ETFs).
Are we nearing the end of the great silver depression? Theodore Butler for SilverSeek thinks that the days of the silver price depression are just about gone and that the metal could be headed for its true free market price.

An apparent liquidation cycle taking place on the COMEX for silver and gold futures.Historically, low-risk entry points are presented when liquidation cycles have exhausted themselves
As for now, the drop in metals prices have removed a lot of risk from the market. There is no way to tell how deep silver sell-offs may go, and when, but the prices are giving a signal that times are conducive to buying sometime soon.
Alas, silver is below its trend line. Will this prediction come to fruition? Keep your eye on the 200-day moving average, and be prepared with an entry and an exit strategy before investing in a fund.
