Well part of the inside story is that bandwagons of 'robinhoods' on a certain social media platform, decided to conspire and pump it. They were the same groups of people who pumped GME .
They believe they are powerful based on the GME effect, and can do this sort of thing in other places. But there is a problem coming to them - it will test their power.
Silver is not GME . Silver is a very different market ruled by other very powerful forces, like the US Dollar . We shall watch this one to see if social media traders can really manipulate anything they think they can.

From my reading Gold, Silver and other metals tend to drift south in recessions (reasons I'm not interested in). Well, a whole loadah countries are in double-dip recession and the US Dollar - still the official reserve country - has been moving up (being the 'gold substitute' after the Gold Standard was abolished many moons ago).
Those who are banking on a new Utopia post-covid are likely to increase demand for USD, sending the DXY higher even in recessions. I may be wrong of course, because weird things happen with the DXY. In addition the US stock markets are in a precarious position. We're in the anniversary period when we had the 40% crash last year US stock markets. DXY did a crazy whipsaw in that period.
Whatever the 'mechanics', I'm glued to the Silver chart. I'll learn something. 👍
We are in a new kind of strategy in the markets, according to gurus out there. The power of social media is well known in the crptosphere. Reddits have brought that home to share prices.
The concept of manipulating a short squeeze is new to me and I'm still trying to understand it. Explained here but whole of the video is important info https://youtu.be/krRHRDiEDkE?t=702
In trading terms, going against the trend is not a great idea. I agree that the big push in the trend is for the north as seen in the amber line and with the naked eye. Some have actually not looked at the importance of the amber line cuz their emotions prevent them from doing so. It represents a trend switch. At 2021-03-11 09:38 GMT there are two counter trends developing on 30 min and 15 min time frames. Nobody.. nobody can know how far they might go.
It may well fail, so I have only given a probabilistic estimate of further travel south. If there is a 51% chance in my mind that it might move south, then there is a residual 49% chance that it might move north. Read that again. It's not a prediction. In other words I'm well aware that I may 'go under water' - but my rescue is a thing called a stop-loss. Some traders don't know about it's importance- trust me on that. Oh sure they know of it. But it's importance is not well appreciated. (Nothing here refers to you). So drown - I shall not! 🤣
My methodology aims to find trends early. It will be seen as scary for a majority of traders who don't understand it and the risks i.e. big losses and excessively large gains.
The idea in any trading system is for aggregate of winners to well exceed aggregate of losers. The methodology doesn't work for most people. Why? Because I can't, won't and don't provide skill and that's the same for any other system that is sold out there. But just to be clear, I'm not pushing this methodology. I don't sell anything. I have no desire to take money in exchange for hopes. And for sure I don't want to cause anybody to lose their money.
