SILVER 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) uncertainty on the outcome of the U.S.-China meeting on trade
Gold and silver prices are moderately lower in early U.S. trading Friday, pressured by bearish outside market forces that include a firmer U.S. dollar index and weaker oil prices. February gold futures were last down $3.80 an ounce at $1,226.50. March Comex silver was down $0.102 at $14.30 an ounce.
March silver futures bears have the solid overall near-term technical advantage.

The next downside price breakout objective for the bears is closing prices below solid support at the November low of $13.985. First resistance is seen at this week’s high of $14.545 and then at last week’s high of $14.66. Next support is seen at this week’s low of $14.185 and then at $14.00.
