Fundamentally, this is a seasonal / cyclical trade that has been profitable 12 of the last 15 years. After exiting long July contracts to avoid deliveries, bullish speculators and consumer-hedgers reinstate positions in the next most active contract and drive prices higher. Technically, Silver has moved into an upwards trend.

There is a risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Seasonal trades track historical price cycles and have the benefit of hindsight. There is no guarantee that any seasonal trade will follow the same cycle as in previous years and as such, there is no guarantee of profit. The use of a stop loss order may not necessarily limit your loss to the intended amount.
You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources.
