Silver Miners ETF (SIL) remains in a downtrend, no doubt about it. Similar to Silver, SIL has created a series of flat bottoms and lower highs over the past year.

SIL is testing a breakout level this week at (1). If Silver breaks above its 7-year falling channel in the top chart, SIL could follow and breakout at (1) above.
