The U.S. Dollar Index managed to settle back above the 98 level and is testing the resistance at 98.35. If this test is successful, the U.S. Dollar Index will move towards the resistance at 98.70, which may be bearish for silver and gold price today. However, it remains to be seen whether stronger dollar will be bearish for precious metals today as demand for safe-haven assets is increasing.

Gold moved above the resistance at $1935 and is heading towards the next resistance level at $1950, while SPDR Gold Shares ETF is trying to settle above the $181 level. If gold gets to the test of the resistance at $1950, silver will get more support.
