We really can't know for sure what's going to happen.
I would have shares before, and the ability to buy on both sides of the event.
Save some dry powder for a possible spike down if we go over the cliff but don't be without shares in case we don't and it flies.
If an agreement isnt made by Jan. 1st it will be kinda off the cliff but more like kick the can again. A non event either way. These worms wont let the market crash and will do whats best for the World bankers.
The four month trend is bullish. 2 months into that trend a correction started and was completed. Over the last month, a bullish trend has re-established itself, coincident to the four month trend - as confirmation.
Drilling down further, the current bearish 2 week trend was/is a correction within the one month bull. The current status is limbo. The two week bear trend could reinvigorate itself downward, but there are no particular signals stating what's going to happen next.
The last trend rules until it doesn't. The current bullish 6 day trend (which is not particularly strong) ends only when 32.749 is breached downside for 15 mins, at which point the two week bear trend will have reinvigorated itself.
This current 1 week bull exhausts itself upward at 33.63 (Mar 12 contract), unless it decides to take out upside 33.905, in which case the 1 month and 4 month bull re-establish their dominance.
silver is just drifting until the next catalyst signals the next move.
