Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD Bounced at the 20-DMA, reclaims $23.00 on risk aversion

  • Silver prices bounce and cling to gains, despite a buoyant US Dollar.
  • Near-term, XAG/USD might consolidate, as mixed signals between the RSI/RoC suggest caution is warranted.

Silver is recovering some ground after falling to weekly lows during the New York session of $22.56. However, a late buying impulse keeps XAG/USD trading in the green with gains of 0.41%. At the time of writing, the XAG/USD is trading at $23.21, above its opening price, and set to finish the week with losses of 1.23%.

Silver Price Analysis: Technical outlook

The XAG/USD daily chart depicts that the non-yielding metal remains upward biased after testing an upslope support trendline drawn from November lows. However, failure to crack the latter and its confluence with the 20-day EMA triggered Silver recovery. Also, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Rate of Change (RoC) suggest that buyers are gathering momentum, and a daily close above the December 15 close of $23.05 could keep the trend intact.

In the near-term, the XAG/USD one-hour chart suggests that Silver’s dip below $22.60 opened the door for sellers to lean onto the 200-Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $23.22 as immediate intraday resistance. Furthermore, mixed signals between the RSI – aiming upwards, and RoC – depicting buying pressure losing momentum might refrain traders from opening new positions.

Nevertheless, if XAG/USD breaks above the 200-EMA, the immediate ceiling level would be the daily pivot at $23.33, followed by the R1 pivot at $23.69. On the downside, the XAG/USD first support would be the 50-EMA at 23.16. A breach of the latter will expose December’s 15 daily low at $23.06, ahead of the $23.00 mark.
