Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) Markets Continue To Show Plenty Of Volatility
Silver markets went back and forth during the course of the week, eventually settling on a relatively unchanged candle. By forming the massive shooting star that we have, it shows that the previous uptrend line is in fact trying to keep this market down.
If we can break down below the bottom of the candlestick then it’s very likely that the silver markets will pullback, perhaps even as low as the $17.00 level. Otherwise, if we can break above the $19.00 level, that would be an extraordinarily bullish sign and could send this market looking towards the $20.00 level above, which is just above where we are been beaten back.
