I don't see many similarities. That doesn't mean it CAN'T end the same way, but I see underlying fundamentals as totally different: That move was faster and higher from a lower base. European Debt Crisis was real but a poor second act to the 2008 Financial Crisis Yields on competing instruments (stocks, bonds) were much better. Markets were weaker. Yields on competing instruments today are much worse. Markets are much stronger. Silver, which reflects retail speculation, was in the $40's. Today it's in the mid-$20's. It's like comparing the move in the NASDAQ today vs. 20 years ago. Yeah, similarities but the fundamentals of the stocks then and now are totally different (eyeballs then, cash flow and market dominance today).
