Last night (4/25), Spot Silver in USD/oz hit an intraday high of $49.30 and an intraday low of $44.72 (-9.2%). It has since bounced back to $45.59. SLV's run looked exhausted on the chart and needed downside protection (imho), at least in the short term. Yesterday I saw an interesting SLV put spread that traded in October out-of-the-money. There are a few events coming up that could increase silver volatility: Bernanke's press conference on Wednesday, the debt limit vote and end of QE2. Inflation reads, margin hikes and China FX reserve diversification could also affect silver trading. In the next few days I'll go over SLV in more detail with charts, recent option trades, implied volatility, articles and embedded videos.
