The silver market remains very volatile. Yesterday, there was a huge $1.20 per ounce mid-day swing in spot silver in New York trading.

I think that silver anywhere below $16 per ounce is still a relative bargain. The short squeeze is on, and the spot silver price will likely zoom up near $20 per ounce before the summer trading doldrums set in. Buy on the dips!
