www.goldtrends.net Silver has reached the 41.95 area on Monday and is very close to the upper purple channel line. The highest monthly close in 1980 was 41.50 ----- so there should be some resistance in the 41-43 area. Support is the 40.50, 40.00, 39.30, and 38.20 area. A pullback to the 40 area or even the upper dotted trend line should provide support -- at least initially. The trend remains up -----and the lower purple channel line and the dotted trend lines are first support this week.
