XAG/USD fails to extend last Friday’s rally, retreats from weekly highs of around $21.30, and drops 0.92% or 0.20 cents in Monday’s session. At the time of writing, the XAG/USD is trading at $21.02, below its opening price.
XAG/USD Price action
Silver is downward biased, as shown by the daily chart. After testing the February 17 daily low, which turned resistance at $21.18, the XAG/USD spot price dropped, as bears eye $20.00. However, on its way south, the XAG/USD needs to clear the $21.00 barrier. Once removed, the XAG/USD next support would be the March 3 low of $20.84, followed by the March 1 low of $20.68. A breach of the latter would expose the YTD low of $20.43.
After exiting oversold conditions, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) turned the corner and its aiming down. That suggests that sellers are gathering momentum, further reinforced by the Rate of Change (RoC), as buying pressure is losing momentum.
As an alternate scenario, the XAG/USD first resistance would be the March 6 high at $21.30. Once buyers reclaim that level, Silver could rally toward the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) At $21.50 before reaching the 200-day EMA at $21.85.
