I meant it as in the way the price action has been playing out almost exactly the way they intend to do. For example the pinbar at the 62EMA/PPA (orange line resistance) signaled a short trade for me and it played out exactly as I had anticipated it. I can't say the same will happen with great probability in the equity market lol (for me anyway):

Ridiculous intraday price action here! My word, it has not gotten any less crazy yet.

If silver continues to get sold off tomorrow then the dollar may rebound for a day or two which would cause the over market to pull back which it is looking to do after the huge run up we have the past week.  What do ya'll think?  

 I knew I should of shorted silver at the highs today.  I couldn't pull the trigger.  Congrats to anyone who did short at the top. thumbup.gif

it seems the futures are strictly technical doesn't?  Nice chart and nice play on you demo account.  How many points did you go long or w/e it is and how much profit did you make so far?

Several market participants said silver's decline was accelerated by broker MF Global (MF), which they said raised its own margin requirements on top of CME's increase.

An MF Global spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the company had raised its margins.

Low trading volumes likely amplified silver's decline. It took less than 6,000 contracts changing hands, or around 3% of the day's trading volume, to knock prices to a two-week low on a day when many markets in Asia and Europe were closed. Gold has been less prone to such wild price swings as there are many more market participants trading gold futures, which reduces the influence of each individual transaction.

"This was panic-type selling. As the market started falling in the midst of thin volumes it drew more sellers to the market, and this created a vacuumed to the downside," said Dave Meger, director of metals trading at Vision Financial Markets.

Front-month May silver futures settled down 5.2% at $46.078 a troy ounce.

yep, raising margin takes players out...

 

post #1875 of 3839

Can someone enlighten me as to why silver went down during the second half of trading today? From what I understand, the gap down this morning was due to an increase in margin requirements, but is the afternoon sell-off just a follow through? Or is their another reason?

post #1876 of 3839

Thin trading in the morning had a lot to do with it. Some Asian countries were not trading today.  Also margin calls as well as some other factors

But it seems to me that the volume this morning was relatively high compared to that of the previous days? And do you think most of the margin calls has already taken place? If not, then we'll probably head lower..

it was also moving inverse of the dollar.  the dollar ran up in the afternoon and silver went down.

post #1879 of 3839

Volume this morning was actually low on the buy side. Someone sold a shit ton of silver this morning and made fucking money. I saw every tick and there was no support what so ever. Article on it is on zerohedge.com .

 

Margin calls affected alot of people and were probably already priced into the futures market, but Think or Swim doubled the market margin to 60K wiping out a great deal of futures traders that can not place the capital to trade the futures market.. China has a lot to do with Silver and its spot price, which was reflected when no one in China was there to trade it.

Did you watch the price action of Silver during Asian and European trading hours because there until the 58% retracement it was trading just like it should
