The latest actions in the price of silver have helped confirm the newly emerging bull market.
In early January, silver prices twice tested $15.75 to close above $15.70. The second time they tested that level they quickly reversed, with silver dropping back to $15.55, then gradually falling even further.

Friday's morning sell-off in the dollar torpedoed the DXY, which dropped from its Thursday peak to near 95.75 late Friday.
Silver prices initially weakened then reversed on Monday thanks to safe-haven buying, further dollar weakness, and more softness in stocks, ending the trading day at $15.72.
Now, here's where I see the price of silver heading after this week's FOMC meeting...
