Gold and silver prices prices are weaker in early U.S. trading Wednesday, on routine downside corrections amid price uptrends still firmly in place on the daily bar charts. Don’t be surprised to see the bulls step in to “buy the dips” at some point today, as risk appetite has decreased a bit at mid-week. December gold futures were last down $5.90 an ounce at 1,534.40. December Comex silver prices were last down $0.058 at $18.57 an ounce.

Asian and European stock markets were mostly down in overnight trading. U.S. stock indexes are pointed toward modestly lower openings when the New York day session begins.

Traders and investor risk sentiment has up-ticked at mid-week, mainly because of two developments on Tuesday. The first is the harsh rhetoric coming from President Trump in a speech to the United Nations assembly in New York Tuesday morning. Trump slammed China for its unfair trade practices and said the world is no longer embracing “globalization.” Trump said “nationalism” is the new bent among the major countries of the world. Trump’s strong words against China seemingly can’t help but decrease the odds of a substantial U.S.-China trade agreement anytime soon.

December silver futures bulls have the solid overall near-term technical advantage. A four-month-old uptrend is in place on the daily bar chart. Silver bulls’ next upside price breakout objective is closing prices above solid technical resistance at $19.00 an ounce. The next downside price breakout objective for the bears is closing prices below solid support at the September low of $17.47. First resistance is seen at this week’s high of $18.81 and then at $19.00. Next support is seen at Tuesday’s low of $18.315 and then at $18.25.

A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 5 white candles and 5 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 30 white candles and 20 black candles for a net of 10 white candles.

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 70.5754. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 0 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 50.27. 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 14 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 32. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 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 12 period(s) ago.
