XAG/USD: general review for January 13, 2016

January 13, 2016

Current trend

Today the pair is growing as it correcting up after a significant fall of the beginning of the week. The pair is supported by stock market instability in China. Despite today’s data on Trade Balance in China that showed a growth to 60.8 billion USD, investors have serious worries about the Chinese economy and consider precious metals as the safe-haven assets.

Today attention needs to be paid to data on MBA Mortgage Applications in the US. Growth in the index might support the USD.

Support and resistance

MACD histogram is in the negative zone while its volumes remain unchanged. ADX indicate a fall in the pair, DI lines cross each other and directed down.
