Silver Gains Ground Ahead Of The Weekend
Silver continues its attempts to settle above the 20 EMA at $25.60 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.
The U.S. Dollar Index is currently located in the range between the support at the 50 EMA at 91.90 and the resistance at the 92 level. If the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle back above the 92 level, it will move towards the resistance at 92.15 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.
Gold failed to settle above the resistance level at $1835 and pulled back towards $1825. The nearest significant support level for gold is located at the 50 EMA at $1815. If gold gets to the test of this level, silver will find itself under pressure.
Gold/silver ratio did not manage to settle back above 71.50 and is slowly moving towards the 71 level. In case gold/silver ratio manages to test the 71 level, silver will get more support.
Silver is currently testing the resistance level at the 20 EMA at $25.60. If silver manages to get above the 20 EMA, it will gain additional upside momentum and head towards the next resistance level which is located at yesterday’s highs at $25.80.
A move above the resistance at $25.80 will push silver towards the next resistance at the 50 EMA at $26.10. If silver manages to settle above the 50 EMA at $26.10, it will head towards the resistance level which is located at $26.30.
On the support side, the nearest support level for silver is located at $25.50. If silver declines below this level, it will move towards the support at $25.30. A move below the support at $25.30 will open the way to the test of the support at $25.00. In case silver gets below $25.00, it will move towards the next support level at $24.70.
