Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) formed a hammer potential bullish indicator
Silver markets initially fell during the trading sessions that made up the week, but at this point it’s still a bit early to say. The fact that we formed a hammer is a very bullish sign though so keep that in mind. I do believe that if we break above the trend line, it’s very likely that we will then test the $14.85 level. A break above that level opens up the door to $15.00, and then perhaps even further to the upside than that.
One thing that’s worth paying attention to is the fact that the Gold markets broke out during the week, and silver will typically follow given enough time. This is a bit of a safety play, but silver will lag at gold considering that gold is a pure precious metal play when silver has a lot to do with industrial demand as well.
If we did break down below the weekly candle stick, we could open the door to the $14.00 level, but quite frankly Friday has changed the attitude of silver enough to have people rethink what’s going next. I do recognize that silver is very choppy and difficult to deal with, so this longer-term play is something that you should use very little leverage with and think of more as an investment than anything else. To me, it looks as if silver is ready to continue higher if the situation stays the same.

PREC.M.XAG= is currently 2.2% below its 200-period moving average and is in an downward trend. Volatility is extremely low when compared to the average volatility over the last 10 periods. There is a good possibility that there will be an increase in volatility along with sharp price fluctuations in the near future. Our volume indicators reflect very strong flows of volume into XAG= (bullish). Our trend forecasting oscillators are currently bearish on XAG= and have had this outlook for the last 65 periods. Our momentum oscillator has set a new 14-period high while the security price has not. This is a bullish divergence.
