Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) near-term chart postures have deteriorated recently

Gold and silver prices are moderately lower in early-afternoon U.S. trading Thursday, with gold notching at three-week low. The metals are pressured today by a solid rally in the U.S. dollar index, which also hit a three-week high. Some technical selling is also occurring in gold and silver, as their near-term chart postures have deteriorated recently. February gold futures were last down $4.20 an ounce at $1,279.80. March Comex silver was down $0.075 at $15.30 an ounce.

In fundamental developments today, the European Central Bank’s regular monetary policy meeting ended with no change in policy, as expected. The metals did not significantly react to the news, or to ECB President Mario Draghi’s press conference.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

The projected upper bound is: 15.71.

The projected lower bound is: 14.97.

The projected closing price is: 15.34.

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 40.6051. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 1 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 51.36. 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 10 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 -96. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 0 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 8 period(s) ago.
