XAG/USD Price Forecast: Technical outlook
XAG/USD is testing the low of September 24, 2020, at $21.65. A sustained break of the latter would exert substantial downward pressure on silver. The following support level would be July 15, 2020, high at $19.48. In case of a break of that level, the psychological $19.00 would be the seller's next target.
On the flip side, failure at $21.65 can pave the way for further gains. The first supply zone for XAG/USD would be the psychological $22.00 level, immediately followed by the August 9 low at $22.17. A decisive break of the level mentioned above could push the price towards $23.00.
