Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD drops to $21.50 on ascending triangle breakdown

FXStreet · 20 Jun 2022 5.3K Views
  • Silver extends Friday’s losses by breaking immediate bullish triangle.
  • RSI conditions, 100-HMA probe the further downside, weekly horizontal support also challenges bears.
  • Bulls need a clear break of $22.51 to retake control.

Silver (XAG/USD) remains on the back foot for the second consecutive day, down 0.75% around the intraday low of $21.47, as bears cheer a technical breakout during early Monday. Also keeping sellers hopeful is the broad US dollar strength and the bright metal’s failure to cross the $22.00 hurdle.

However, the nearly oversold RSI conditions and the 100-HMA restrict immediate declines of the XAG/USD to around $21.50. Also acting as a downside filter is the one-week-old horizontal support near $21.35.

Should the quote drop below $21.35, the odds of witnessing a fresh monthly low, currently around $20.90, can’t be ruled out. The same highlights the yearly bottom marked in May, close to $20.45.

Meanwhile, the silver buyer’s return needs a clear upside break of the $22.00 hurdle. Though, the 200-HMA level of $21.65 and the aforementioned triangle’s lower line around $21.80 may restrict the immediate recovery of the metal.

In a case where the commodity prices rise beyond $22.00, the $22.30 and a monthly high of $22.51 may rest the XAG/USD bulls before giving them control.
