As long as silver junior players trade so terribly, then any green action in SLW is nothing more than another deadcat bounce, with the bear stock headed for single digits this year..just examine the very awful bearish trading action of silver junior, Alexco, and it screams to all pro traders that the senior silvers are ALL experiencing nothing more than another contrived deadcat bounce to scam amateurs to buy many thousands more worthless silver call options.
Over several decades of trading, I learned that the only way you can determine if the rise in a gold or silver senior is genuine requires an examination of the smaller companies.
If the share price rise is restricted to seniors, then generally that means specialists, in cahoots with banks and funds, are providing false rallies in order to scam amateurs into purchasing call options, that will expire worthless.
If the share price rise occurs throughout the sector, including smaller junior companies, then that is the only criterion by which the rise can be judged to be genuine and sustainable.
By my evaluations, the current slight rise in SLW is a phony, since the medium and junior silvers are trading flat or red.
