Silver Is Mostly Flat At The Start Of The Week

Silver Remains Stuck Near The $23 Level

Silver is currently trying to settle back above $23.00 while U.S. dollar is gaining some ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index is testing the resistance level at 95.20. In case this test is successful, the U.S. Dollar Index will move towards the resistance at 95.40 which will be bearish for silver and gold price today. Stronger dollar is bearish for precious metals as it makes them more expensive for buyers who have other currencies.

Meanwhile, gold made an attempt to settle below the support at $1815 but failed to develop sufficient downside momentum and remained in the $1815 – $1830 range. In case gold declines below $1815, it will gain additional downside momentum and move towards the next support level which is located near the 50 EMA at $1800.

Gold/silver ratio is currently trying to settle above the 20 EMA at 79.25. A move above the 20 EMA will push gold/silver ratio towards the resistance at 79.50 which will be bearish for silver.

It should be noted that U.S. stock markets are closed today, so ETFs like iShares Silver Trust and SPDR Gold Trust are not trading.
