If you're bullish about the long term for gold and silver, it's mouthwatering to watch them undergo a major correction after taking earlier profits that added to your deployable cash. For a little historical perspective on pullbacks, consider the following charts.

Major Gold Corrections in the Current Bull Market

Returns 3 Months After the Bottom

The current 15.6% gold decline, while considered a "major" correction, is not out of the ordinary, particularly following the late summer spike. And after each big selloff, there was a price consolidation phase that in every instance led to higher prices. The message: hold on, and buy the big dips.

Major Silver Corrections in the Current Bull Market

Returns 3 Months After the Bottom

Not surprisingly, silver's biggest corrections are larger than gold's. This is also true for the rebounds; they've been quite dramatic. If we apply the biggest three-month recovery of 44.3% to the current correction, that would take silver to $40.63... meaning we probably shouldn't expect $60 silver by year-end.

 


There's still time to capitalize on the anomaly in the metals market that will bring amazing profits to those who are positioned for it. This report will help you get started... and offers a special bonus, too. Don't delay - the tide could turn very soon.
