- 2022, 18 May
- Silver prices struggle to extend monthly resistance breakout.
- Bearish candlestick, 10-DMA probes upside momentum.
- Impending bull cross on MACD, clear break of short-term resistance, not support, keeps buyers hopeful.
Silver (XAG/USD) steadies around $21.60, following a pullback from the weekly high, during Wednesday’s Asian session.
In doing so, the bright metal justifies Tuesday’s Gravestone Doji candlestick while also portraying failures to cross the 10-DMA, around $21.65 by the press time.
Even so, a looming bull cross of the MACD signal joins the metal’s successful break of a one-month-old resistance, now support around $21.20, to keep silver buyers hopeful.
Should the quote rises past $21.65, the $22.00 may offer an intermediate halt during the run-up to a monthly high near $23.30.
Meanwhile, a downside break of the resistance-turned-support, near $21.20, won’t hesitate to direct XAG/USD towards the multi-month low marked in May around $20.45.
Following that, the $20.00 psychological magnet will be crucial for the bears to watch.
Overall, silver remains directed towards the north but short-term hurdles test recovery moves.
