- Rising US bond yields curtail Silver’s momentum as it moves between key daily Exponential Moving Averages.
- XAG/USD breaking resistance at around $23.88 may propel Silver to challenge $24.00.
- A drop below the 100-day EMA and the June 5 low of $23.25 could trigger a steeper decline.
Silver price stopped its fall amidst rising US Treasury bond yields, cushioned by the 100-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) lying at $23.47. Still, it also failed to rally, capped by solid resistance at around the $23.74-88 area, where the 20 and 50-day EMAs lie. Therefore, XAG/USD is trading at $23.52, almost flat.
XAG/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook
From a daily chart perspective, the XAG/USD path remains unclear, trapped between daily EMAs, pending cracking resistance at around $23.74-88, which would pave the way to challenge the June 2 high of $24.01. A breach of the latter would shift Silver upwards and open the door to test the April 25 low turned resistance at $24.49 before aiming towards February 2 high at $24.63.
Conversely, XAG/USD falling below the 100-day EMA and sliding beneath the June 5 low of $23.25 could exacerbate a more profound fall toward the May 30 daily low of $22.93. Once broken, the XAG/USD next challenge will be the 200-day EMA at $22.87
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator is in bearish territory, while the 3-day Rate of Change (RoC) followed suit. Therefore, in the near term, Silver’s path could be downwards.
