Silver Technical Analysis | XAGUSD gains 5% in just 3 days

BY Janne Muta, M.Sc in Finance

|November 27, 2023

Silver Technical Analysis – The silver market has rallied strongly after a period of consolidation as Gold started to move higher. This surge is underpinned by strong industrial demand for silver in key sectors such as photovoltaics, electronics, and 5G networks. Silver has seen a notable increase of almost 5% in just three days, buoyed by its close correlation with the rising gold market.


The demand in industrial contexts remains strong while the market faces a significant supply shortage. A notable deficit in silver production means upward price pressures should remain in the foreseeable future.

Moreover, traders in the FED funds futures market are anticipating up to four rate cuts by the Federal Reserve in 2024. This speculation keeps the U.S. dollar under pressure, which in turn contributes positively to the upward momentum in the XAGUSD.

Summary of This Silver Technical Analysis Report:

  • Silver has broken out of the bearish trend channel, as focused on in the previous silver technical analysis report. The breakout followed after the market created a higher swing low at 21.87, and now the market is trading towards the April high at 26.13.
  • Silver has broken out of a consolidation formation (bull flag) as it continues to rally. The market rallied 10% before the consolidation started, and now that the bull flag pattern has been resolved to the upside, we might see further upside in this market. A measured move target based on the bull flag pattern suggests that the market could trade to the April high at 26.13.
  • The 8-hour chart also provides a bullish technical picture for silver, with the market rallying strongly higher after it broke out of the consolidation triangle formation.

Weekly Silver Technical Analysis

Silver has broken out of the bearish trend channel, as focused on in the previous silver technical analysis report. The breakout followed after the market created a higher swing low at 21.87, and now the market is trading towards the April high at 26.13.

However, it needs to clear any potential supply near the July and August highs at 25.00 and 25.26, respectively. If this resistance area is cleared, we could see the market trading up to 26.13. Alternatively, the key weekly support level at 26.69 might be tested.

Daily Silver Technical Analysis

Silver has broken out of a consolidation formation (bull flag) as it continues to rally. The market rallied 10% before the consolidation started, and now that the bull flag pattern has been resolved to the upside, we might see further upside in this market. A measured move target based on the bull flag pattern suggests that the market could trade to the April high at 26.13.

However, currently silver is trading near resistance levels. The market has tested a bull channel top at 24.81 and reacted lower. The channel top coincides with a daily high from the beginning of September. If we see a deeper retracement, the nearest support levels at 24.01 and 24.14 could come into play.

Key technical price levels

The nearest major daily resistance level can be found at 25.00. Should the nearest support levels fail to attract buying, we could see the market trading down to 23.70.

As the 20-period moving average is above the 50-period SMA, and the market trades well above the 20-period SMA, the indicator-based silver technical analysis suggests that the market is bullish. The stochastic oscillator is in the overbought area, which is common during uptrends and therefore not a significant indication.

However, it can help us in drawing our attention to the fact that the market is trading relatively close to a resistance created by the bull channel top.
