It is worth noting that peak in Silver was the same as in Silver Miners ETF (SIL) and wave ( II) low in SIL was the secondary low in Silver in March 2020. It is evident that Silver will not trade below zero line as no one would pay you to get Silver from there which supports the view that correction of the Grand Super cycle in Silver ended in March 2020. Moreover, Gold has already broken above 2011 peak and has an incomplete bullish sequence suggesting Silver will also be looking for a break of 2011 peak and if that happens, Silver Miners ETF should follow so the current pull back is a good opportunity for buyers to look for an entry to catch a possible wave III.
