In no way should any of this be taken to be at odds with my strong belief that the next move up in silver could and should be the big one.

When you see this type of thing on the charts for one of the precious metals or for some other commodity for that matter, I know you cover a lot of different markets, does it mean that we&#039;re likely to see a big move one way or the other?
