Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) continues to see a lot of struggle

Silver markets have fallen during the trading session on Thursday, showing signs of weakness. However, we are still within a rising wedge, which extends down to about $14.60 currently. If we were to break down through that level, silver could fall rather hard.

However, if we turn around and break above the $15.00 level, it’s likely that the Silver markets will take off to the upside. In the meantime, this is a market that will continue to be very choppy and noisy, which is typical for this market anyway. After all, the precious metals markets are highly sensitive to risk appetite, and with all of the US/China trade headlines coming out as in the next couple of days, silver will be very difficult.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

The projected upper bound is: 15.14.

The projected lower bound is: 14.34.

The projected closing price is: 14.74.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 67.7902. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 28 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 41.13. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 69 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -93. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
