Silver Remains Under Strong Pressure

Key Insights

  • A successful test of the support at $24.70 will push silver towards the next support at $24.50.

Silver ETF Is Losing Ground

Silver is currently testing the support level at $24.70, while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies. Meanwhile, iShares Silver Trust is trying to get below the support at $22.80.

The U.S. Dollar Index settled below the 99 level and is testing the next support at 98.70. If the U.S. Dollar Index declines below this level, it will move towards the support at 98.35, which may be bullish for silver and gold price today. However, it should be noted that general demand for safe-haven assets remains the key driver for precious metals.

Gold settled below the 20 EMA and is testing the next support level at $1915 while SPDR Gold Shares ETF is trying to settle below the $179 level. If gold settles below $1915, it will head towards the support at the $1900 level, which will be bearish for silver.

Gold/silver ratio has recently made another attempt to settle above the resistance at the 50 EMA at 78.05 but failed to develop sufficient upside momentum and pulled back. In case gold/silver ratio settles below the support at 77.50, it will head towards the 77 level, which will be bullish for silver.
