Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD limited while under $21.50, upside bias above $20.85


  • Silver falls modestly on Friday, holds above key support levels. 
  • Technical outlook presents a bullish bias but upside seems limited while under $21.50.
  • Break under $20.85 likely to increase bearish pressure. 

Silver is falling on the last day of the week. It bottomed during the American session at $21.14 and then quickly bounced back above $21.30, as the correction from the one-week top around $21.70 faded. It is headed toward a weekly gain of 2%. 

From a technical perspective, the XAG/USD, has managed to remains above the 210-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) that stands at 20.90. The chart appears to favor the upside at the moment. The area around $20.85/20.90 has become a critical support for that bullish perspective to hold. 

A decline below $20.85 could trigger more losses exposing the mid-November intraday low at $20.56. Below the next target is seen at $20.25. Attention then is set on the $19.95/20.00 barrier. 

A convincing breakout above $21.50 should open the doors to more gains. The next resistance area is in the $21.65/70 region followed by the $22.00 mark. The five-month high awaits at $22.26.

The XAG/USD is about to post a weekly gain of 2% and technical indicators favor the upside. Price is facing resistance at the 55-week SMA at $21.90. A weekly close above might clear the way to the 100-week SMA at $23.45.
