Anticipating The Rally In Wheaton Precious Metals

On March 13, amid a broad discussion about the emerging bull phase developing in the precious metals and miners, Mike Paulenoff posted this about WPM (Wheaton Precious Metals) to our MPTrader discussion room:

From a more Silver-Gold perspective (if FCX is perceived to be Copper-centric), let's notice that WPM strength is pushing up against its near-term resistance line in the vicinity of 45.80, which if taken out and sustained, will point WPM toward a challenge of its 4-1/2 year resistance line that cuts across the price axis at 51.00... Last is 45.60...

Mike followed up with a note on the afternoon of April 3:

WPM (Wheaton Precious Metals) is knocking on the door of a near 4-year upside breakout zone from 51.00 to 52.80, which if (when) taken out, will project an intermediate-term target zone of 60-62. Any forthcoming weakness into the 48.60 to 47.00 support area should attract major buying interest-- if it gets back down there... Last is 50.43...

Last Thursday-Friday (April  11 and 12), WPM thrust above Mike's initial target of 51.00, hitting a 3-1/2 year high at 54.30, a full 19% above the initial heads-up at 45.60. 

That said, however, WPM sold off 4.5% in sympathy with many risk-on assets late Friday ahead of a weekend fraught with greatly heightened geopolitical uncertainties, closing at 51.80.

What does Mike's work tell him about the technical setup in WPM as well as the precious metals complex going forward? Will the geopolitical risk-premium continue to be a factor supporting prices? What influence will a Fed reluctant to cut interest rates have on gold and silver? And what about the US Dollar's position vis-a-vis the precious metals?
