Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) to stay positive hence it’s clearly a buy on dips market
Silver stays below the 50 EMA level at $15.60 following the release of U.S. Initial Jobless Claims report which showed that 5.25 million of Americans applied for unemployment benefits.
Currently, it looks like the market was ready to hear the bad news, and there is no rush to safety. The U.S. Dollar Index was trying to get above the psychologically important 100 level but failed to settle above it.
Yesterday, the rush to safety following the release of disappointing U.S. Retail Sales data put pressure on silver prices. Today, silver prices may have the opportunity to show some upside since the U.S. Initial Jobless Claims report was close to analyst expectations so global markets may avoid a sell-off.
Meanwhile, the total number of coronavirus positive cases in India reached 12,380 and the death toll stands at 414, according to the latest data released by the Union Health Ministry said on Thursday. “Central banks around the globe continue to take measures with an objective to combat the virus outbreak. US retail sales suffered a record drop in March and output at factories declined by the most since 1946 amidst the COVID-19 impact.

A long lower shadow occurred. This is typically a bullish signal (particularly when it occurs near a low price level, at a support level, or when the security is oversold).
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
