Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) Could Be Setting Up to Surge
Supermarkets have rallied a bit during the day on Thursday, showing signs of strength yet again. This is a longer-term uptrend and should continue to follow the same path. The 50-day EMA underneath obviously causing a lot of attention as well.
Silver markets have rallied a bit during the trading session on Thursday, testing significant resistance that we have seen over the last couple of weeks. The $18 level continues to be an area that people will pay attention to as resistance, so keep in mind that the market will probably continue to see a lot of volatility in this area but if we are willing and able to break above the $18 level, the market should continue to go much higher. At this point in time, the market should then go looking towards the $18.75 level.
To the downside there is an uptrend line that should continue to cause the market to reach towards higher levels, as it keeps the uptrend intact. At this point in time it’s likely that the ascending triangle is going to kick off at the $18 level, but we may need several attempts to make it happen.
The 50-day EMA continues to offer support, and of course central banks around the world are doing the same as they ease monetary policy. Silver will take its lead from gold, or vice versa as one tends to give a heads up on the other one, and gold has seen a strong move during the day. Getting above $18 will be the next task ahead, but it’s only a matter of time before that happens. Once it does, the market could rip to the upside rather rapidly.
Otherwise, if we were to break down below the $17 level, that could open up the door to much lower levels such as the $16.37 level which is where the 200-day EMA currently sets.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 25 black candles.
