Silver Price Prediction – Prices Rise on Strong Durable Goods Orders

The greenback was able to gain traction as yields surged higher in the wake of better than expected U.S. Durable Goods orders.

Technical analysis

Silver prices rose on Monday following Friday’s inside day. Prices are poised to test resistance near the 10-day moving average at $22.980. Target support is seen near the September lows at 22.03. Short-term momentum has turned positive as the fast stochastic generated a crossover buy signal. The medium-term positive rate is decelerating as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) histogram is printing in positive territory with a declining trajectory which points to consolidation. The relative strength rebounded and then moved lower after testing the oversold trigger level of 30.
