Current trend

The XAG/USD pair closed last trading week quite successfully, having reached a new local high at 15.02. The level was overcome only on 17 July. The price keeps its «bullish» dynamics this week, promising to reach new highs.

The USD weakened after weak US Non-farm Payrolls statistics were released. Only 215K new jobs were created in July, which is significantly less than the forecast of 223K and worse than the previous value of 231K.

Though analysts gave quite guarded comments, the given figures are likely affect Fed’s intention to increase its interest rate in September. However, the statistics brings about no radical changes and the medium term prospects are still in force.
