Market Timing SLV for 7-28-2011
The silver ETF (SLV) is still in rally mode as the chart shows. Take a look at it below and then look at the comments below it.

SLV has failed to hold the last breakout above the horizontal white line. It is starting to move down to test support at the prior breakout which is shown as the red line. The red line is the same level as the high marked by the green arrow on the left (37.90). The fact that the higher, second breakout has not held is fine, but if SLV falls below the red line, even on an intraday basis, it could fall back toward the May/June lows. It’s possible that it could ease back to the 50 day moving average and resume its rise.
Practical Investing/Trading Pointers: You may want to use a stop somewhere below the prior breakout area (37.72 to 37.90 (37.90 is at green arrow)). If you are a long term silver bull, you may decide to hold unless the May and June lows are breached. And yes, I know that some of you will hold through a much deeper correction. If so, you can look at various support levels as places to add perhaps using a stop for new positions and leaving your core holdings alone.
