Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) looks as if the US dollar boost will work against silver

Silver markets fell a bit during the trading session on Thursday, reaching down towards the $15.00 level during the day as the US dollar picked up strength, and the Euro of course fell. There is a major stabilizing factor at the 1.12 level in the EUR/USD pair, so the pair bounced a bit, and that relieved some of the pressure on silver as the dollar gave back strength. At the same time, the silver market was sitting just above the $15.00 level, which of course is a major figure, and an area where we had seen massive resistance previously.

We are just now pulling back to that previous resistance to prove it to be supportive, so it makes sense that we could get a little bit of relief. Overall, it’s very likely that silver will rally though, and as long as we can stay above the $14.90 level, it’s very likely that silver will continue to go higher. However, if we drop down below that level, it probably will reach down towards the $14.50 level eventually. In general, I do think that silver will hold its value, but obviously we have some volatility ahead of us with the jobs number coming out on Friday. That being the case, I would start out slow and add once the market works out in your favour.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.

The projected upper bound is: 15.42.

The projected lower bound is: 14.60.

The projected closing price is: 15.01.

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 9.8419. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 10 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 32.26. 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 24 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 -113.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a sell 10 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 sell 6 period(s) ago.
