Technical Analysis

silver february 15 2022

Silver is currently testing the support level at the 50 EMA at $23.15. In case this test is successful, silver will move towards the $23.00 level.

A move below $23.00 will open the way to the test of the support level at $22.80. RSI is in the moderate territory, and there is plenty of room to gain additional downside momentum in case the right catalysts emerge. If silver settles below $22.80, it will move towards the next support at $22.60.

On the upside, silver needs to stay above the 50 EMA to have a chance to gain upside momentum in the near term. The next resistance level for silver is located at $23.50.

If silver manages to settle back above $23.50, it will move towards the resistance at $23.70. A successful test of this level will push silver towards the resistance level at $24.00.
