XAG/USD Price Analysis: Technical Outlook
XAG/USD’s decline dragged prices into a test of the 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) and broke two crucial support levels on its way south: first, the 20-day EMA retreated around $25.08, second, a break of the two-week support trendline around $24.63 , which accelerated the white metal’s downtrend towards testing other key support levels.
silver it is challenging the five-month old trend line of previous resistance, turning support around $24.20, which could drop to $24.00 after a break, followed by the 100-day EMA at $23.46. A breach of the latter will expose the 200-day EMA at $22.74.
Conversely, if XAG/USD regains $24.63, it could pave the way to $25.00 per troy ounce. This would create a bullish hammer, push Silver’s bias to the upside and could open the door to testing the year-to-date (YTD) high of $26.13.
