Silver Technical Analysis | The market trades at bear channel high

BY Janne Muta

|November 21, 2023

Silver Technical Analysis – XAGUSD is having trouble moving higher even though the USD is getting weaker. The lower yields have made the dollar less attractive as the market expects the Fed rate policy to become more accommodative. Silver has been rallying with the stock market lately, but in the past few days, it's lost momentum at a technical resistance area.

In theory, weak USD together with expected increase in silver demand for green technologies should support the precious metals sector in the long run and help silver to rally more.

Although recent comments from some Fed officials have not ruled out the possibility of more rate hikes markets have priced out any additional Fed rate hikes. As recent data shows a US slowing economy and inflation pressures investors expect the Fed has completed its interest rate hike cycle and look towards when the central bank may start to cut rates.

Note that, the release of the Fed's latest meeting minutes today is closely watched by market operators for signals on the central bank's policy path.

Summary of This Silver Technical Analysis Report:

  • Silver continues to trade within a bearish trend channel. However, the market created a higher swing low on the weekly chart last week, suggesting strength. Therefore, the bulls might attempt to push the market higher, but a breakout above the bear channel's high is needed before anticipating further bullishness in the market.
  • In the daily timeframe, silver is trading near the top of a descending trend channel. The bearish rejection candle two days ago suggests that the market could retrace lower.
  • The four-hour chart shows that the market has bounced higher after retracing back to a support level. The market has therefore created a higher swing low at this level, and the 23.24 low is now the nearest key support level. However, the market is also trading at a higher timeframe resistance.

Weekly Silver Technical Analysis

Silver continues to trade within a bearish trend channel. However, the market created a higher swing low on the weekly chart last week, suggesting strength.

Therefore, the bulls might attempt to push the market higher, but a breakout above the bear channel's high is needed before anticipating further bullishness in the market. The nearest key support level on the weekly timeframe is at 22.19, while the nearest major resistance level above last week's high is at 25.01.

Overbought condition

According to indicator-oriented silver technical analysis, the market is nearing overbought levels, while the moving averages present mixed signals. The 20-period SMA is below the 50-period SMA, but the 50-period moving average is still pointing higher, suggesting the market has a mild upside bias.

Daily Silver Technical Analysis

In the daily timeframe, silver is trading near the top of a descending trend channel. The bearish rejection candle two days ago suggests that the market could retrace lower.

If the 24.14 high cannot be exceeded decisively, we could see the market moving down to the 22.85 - 23.00 range. Indicator-based silver technical analysis suggests that the market is now overbought, with the stochastic oscillator nearing the overbought area. Note also that the indicator has just given a sell signal.

Alternatively, if the market remains bullish and breaks above 24.14, this could pave the way to 24.70, and then potentially to 26.00 as an extension.
