XAG/USD: pair is falling on February 16, 2016

February 16, 2016

Current trend

Yesterday, the price of silver fell to last Thursday’s opening levels, when a new local low since the end of October 2015 was reached. Prices of commodity assets are falling as risk appetite is gradually returning to the market. However, the US Dollar remains under pressure while the upcoming publication of FOMC Minutes, due on Wednesday, might shed light on the timing of future monetary policy tightening in the US.

Support and resistance

Bollinger Bands indicator on the daily chart is directed up. The price range is narrowing down. MACD is falling and keeping a buy signal. Stochastic is approaching the oversold zone suggesting a downward movement might slow down in a while.

The indicators recommend waiting for clearer trading signals.

Support levels: 15.15, 15.07, 14.90, 14.78, 14.63 (5 February low), 14.55, 14.48, 14.40, 14.30.

Resistance levels: 15.25, 15.44, 15.62, 15.84, 16.00 (near 11 February high), 16.10, 16.34 (28 October 2015 high), 16.84.
