Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) Potential Outperformance on Gold/Silver Ratio Pullback

Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) Potential Outperformance on Gold/Silver Ratio Pullback

Last week, we had highlighted that there was a risk of a pullback before another leg higher in the precious metal given that the surge over the past 1-month saw gold prices at the most overbought levels in decades (full analysis).

As such, with near-term resistance ($1433) holding firm a bout of profit taking had been observed following the outcome of the G20 summit, which unsurprisingly saw the US and China reach a ceasefire to restart trade talks.

However, with the G20 summit now over, focus is back on economic data. So far, this week has seen soft data across the globe with the majority Asian and European PMIs in contraction territory, while there was also little to cheer about with regard to the US ISM Mfg. PMI, despite beating expectations. As such, with global growth showing evidence of moderation, the precious metal may well keep supported.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 15.02.

The projected upper bound is: 15.70.

The projected lower bound is: 14.93.

The projected closing price is: 15.31.


A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
