If Silver starts a consolidation phase, the exchange rate could dip to $29.7, and the $31.4 peak will be considered the new higher high. The resistance level in discussion offers a decent bid to join the bull market compared to Silver’s current price of $31.4, which is very expensive and overpriced.

Analysts at FxNews advise monitoring the key resistance levels below for bullish candlestick patterns, such as long-wick bullish candlestick or hammer candlestick patterns, before gradually increasing buying bids. Candlestick patterns are a traditional and recommended strategy for finding new highs and lows in any market.

  • Resistance 1: $29.7
  • Resistance 2: $28.7

The Bearish Scenario

The EMA 50 and Ichimoku Cloud stand between the bull and the bear market. The uptrend should be invalidated if the XAG/USD price falls below EMA 50 or Ichimoku Cloud. This support level is about $28.7. If this scenario comes into play, the drop could extend to the May 2 low of around $25.
