Market Outlook

Silver’s latest rally, which culminated in a bullish breakout above last week’s high, points to additional increases. However, caution is advised as resistance and support levels come into play within the current bullish trend.

Despite Monday’s surge initiating a bullish weekly breakout, resistance was met around $25.39 before a retracement. The price activity indicates a neutral stance, with silver expected to finish somewhat weak for the day.

Key Price Levels and Targets

Silver’s 15.7% rally over the last 16 days suggests fresh market interest, albeit with resistance near the $25.78 peak

Surpassing the major resistance level at $26.14 would affirm the developing uptrend and pave the door for higher goals beginning at $26.95. An ascending ABCD pattern points to a longer-term target of $27.15, indicating potential further gains.

Caution Amidst Bullish Sentiment

Despite the bullish outlook, silver should be approached with caution until it crosses the swing high of $25.78

Lower Fibonacci retracement levels and crucial moving averages could support a retracement. Monitoring price activity below the $24.33 swing low will provide information about the market’s trajectory.

US Economic Resilience and Impact on Silver

The XAG/USD pair’s neutral trading near $24.98 highlights market concern following strong US economic data.

Positive signs from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) report and the Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) point to economic strength, which reduces the possibility of the Federal Reserve easing

This sentiment has fueled hawkish bets and caused an increase in US Treasury yields, impacting silver prices.

Anticipated Labor Market Data

Upcoming US labor market statistics, such as Nonfarm Payrolls and Average Hourly Earnings, are extensively monitored for clues about economic health and policy direction

These data pieces will influence market expectations and investor sentiment in the following days.

Technical Analysis

On the daily chart, the XAG/USD’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) shows buyer dominance, indicating that upward momentum will continue.

However, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicates some modest bearish pressure. The pair maintains above major Simple Moving Averages (SMA), indicating strong rising momentum over longer periods.
