Silver Price Analysis
From a technical perspective, the XAG/USD has been oscillating in a familiar trading range over the past one-and-a-half week or so. Given the recent sharp pullback from the vicinity of the $27.00 mark or the highest level since June 2021, the range-bound price action could be categorized as a bearish consolidation phase.
That said, technical indicators on the daily chart – though have been losing positive traction – are yet to confirm a bearish bias. Moreover, the emergence of some dip-buying near the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the $22.00-$26.95 move up warrants caution before placing aggressive bearish bets around the XAG/USD.
In the meantime, immediate resistance is pegged near the $25.40-$25.50 region, above which the momentum could get extended towards the $26.00 mark. Some follow-through buying should accelerate the momentum and lift the XAG/USD towards an intermediate resistance near the $26.40 area en-route the $27.00 round-figure mark.
On the flip side, the $24.75 region seems to protect the immediate downside ahead of the $24.55-$24.50 area (50% Fibo. level). A convincing break below would be seen as a fresh trigger for bearish traders and make the XAG/USD vulnerable to slide further towards testing sub-$24.00 levels, or the 61.8% Fibo. level.
