Silver Technical Analysis | Bullish Wedge

BY Janne Muta

|January 23, 2024

Silver Technical Analysis – As Fed Funds futures traders have moderated their rate cut expectations the dollar has remained strong pressuring the precious metals complex with silver trading down in recent weeks. However, silver's industrial demand is expected to rise in 2024, particularly from the solar sector. Analysts remain positive about the silver market emphasising the ongoing supply deficit.

Last year the demand decrease mainly affected the jewellery, silverware, and physical investment sectors, interpreted more as a correction than a collapse. However, supply struggles to meet the growing demand, with mining and recycling insufficient for future needs. Forecasts suggest strong demand growth, especially in the industrial and solar sectors, despite potential global economic slowdowns.

Summary of This Silver Technical Analysis Report:

  • While the 21.87 level is the nearest support the nearest key resistance level is the market structure level at 22.50. A decisive break above this level would open the way to 23.40. Alternatively, below 24.60 the bullish trend channel low could be tested.
  • The 4-hour chart shows silver hesitating at a minor resistance level at 22.40.The stochastic oscillator is close to the overbought area and could soon give a sell signal. With the moving averages pointing lower and the 20. SMA below the 50 period SMA this could result in another leg lower.

Weekly Silver Technical Analysis

After the silver market created a lower swing high at 24.60 silver has traded down to a key support level (21.87) that's relatively close to the rising bull channel low (currently at 21.47). As a result, the market is close to oversold levels both in terms of price action-based silver technical analysis and indicator-based analysis. The stochastic oscillator is currently at the oversold threshold (20).

While the 21.87 level is the nearest support the nearest key resistance level is the market structure level at 22.50. A decisive break above this level would open the way to 23.40. Alternatively, below 24.60 the bullish trend channel low could be tested.

Daily Silver Technical Analysis

Silver is trading inside a bullish wedge. If the market manages to break out of the wedge the move to the 23.40 level mentioned above in the daily silver technical analysis section would look more likely. USD strength has been pressuring XAGUSD lately as the Fed rate cut expectations for March have become more moderate. USD continuing to trade higher would be a significant short-term risk factor for those considering XAGUSD longs.
