Silver (XAG/USD) Price Forecast:

  • Probing resistance around $18.35, bulls have displayed an ability to surmount the level in recent days
  • Silver is more than 11% higher than its December low, but may face a shorter-term pullback

Silver Price Forecast: Can XAG/USD Avoid a Pullback?

The recent uptick in US-Iran tensions was likely responsible for some of silver’s recent rally, a move that was echoed in other “safe” assets like gold and the US Dollar. After surging more than 11% from its December lows, the metal has encountered resistance around the $18.35 level that could look to stop the rally in its tracks. Inching into overbought territory, time is running out for the metal to pierce resistance before bullishness evaporates and bears stage a pullback.

Although XAGUSD has probed the level numerous times, it has been unable to post a daily close above – a development that would help convert the level from resistance to support. With that in mind, silver may require another fundamental catalyst to break the level and drive higher. As I noted last week, Iranian retaliation may provide such a spark, but it appears an insufficient catalyst and has left the door open for a modest pullback in my opinion.

Still, I believe the longer-term outlook for silver and gold is bullish, so forecasting weakness here is against a backdrop of a shorter timeframe – one that looks to capitalize on the overbought nature of XAGUSD at this stage. Having said that, the coming days will be an important test for silver.

If the technical barrier holds strong, the metal may retreat to the $17.50 area to consolidate before attempting another move higher. On the other hand, the metal’s September swing-high around $18.75 will offer initial resistance should silver successfully close above $18.35.
