Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) a lot of concerns out there about global trade and global economic growth going forward
Silver markets rallied significantly on Thursday, reaching towards the $14.60 level, but it’s very likely that we will find sellers above at the downtrend line that I have marked on the chart. The $14.85 level is also resistance, and I think it’s only a matter time before we see signs of exhaustion that come into the market.
At that point, I am more than willing to start selling again as I believe that silver markets are destined to go much lower. That being said, there is always the alternate case that you need to keep track of it as well.
That alternate case would be a daily close above the $14.85 level, and then perhaps the $15.00 level. If we break above there, then the market is very likely to continue going higher. However, I think it’s very unlikely to happen, and I think this will more than likely be a nice selling opportunity as we not only have the down trend lines and previous support and resistance, but we also have the 50 day EMA just above as well.
This is a market that has been selling off for quite some time and I don’t think that changes in the short term as silver has the misfortune of not necessarily being a safety commodity, but more of an industrial one these days, and of course there are a lot of concerns out there about global trade and global economic growth going forward.

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 3 black candles for a net of 3 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 28 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.
