The price of Silver (Ticker: XAG/USD) continues to slide this morning, bringing the commodity to key support near $18.80. This value marks support of a potential descending price channel forming for Silver prices. If prices remain supported here, it opens up price action to bounce back towards resistance. Channel resistance, as depicted below, has been created by connecting a series of swing highs beginning with the July 2016 high at $21.11.

One possibility, suggests that this descending channel is the beginning of a flag pattern. In this scenario, even though prices are currently trading lower, traders may wait for a bullish breakout back in the direction of Silvers primary trend. Traders looking for bullish projections for Silver prices may extrapolate a 1X extension of the markets previous rally. This places potential targets for Silver just under $24.00
