Silver Breakout Attempt Underway

From the Chart Book.  As we write near mid-day Tuesday, silver has broken out above the giant flag downtrend line and it seems to be doing so like it “means it.”  So far.  Just below is a chart of iShares Silver Trust (SLV) as a proxy for silver. 

SLV.  If any of the images are too small click on them for a larger version. 

Notice also that silver (and SLV) has managed to reclaim chart real estate above the 200-dma.  As we send this note to be posted gold is trading with a $1,784 handle, with silver near $36.59. 

Kind of a quiet breakout, don't you think?
