Silver (XAG/USD) Snaps Back From Resistance Post-NFP

Tammy Da Costa, Markets Writer

  • Silver price action falls following weak NFP report
  • CCI suggests that Silver may be harboring overbought conditions
  • Short-term selling pressure may still prevail

Silver Advances as Dollar Takes Strain

Silver prices continue to move lower, as the Dollar takes back some of its previous losses. Despite increasing prospects of additional US Fiscal stimulus following the US Senate runoffs in Georgia, higher bond yields and optimism regarding the distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine overshadowed concerns, boosting the demand for riskier assets.

Silver (XAG/USD) Technical Analysis

Silver faces its third consecutive day of losses against the greenback, after bulls failed to break above the wall of resistance formed by the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level at 2788.4 earlier this week. A decrease in demand for Silver, Gold and other safe-haven assets resulted in bearish dominance, despite an increase in the industrial demand for the precious metal.

Meanwhile, the 20-Day Moving Average has formed an additional layer of support for price action, with a break below this level providing a potential indication that selling pressure may hold. The Commodity Channel Index (CCI) remains confined towards the upper bounds of the Index, lingering just below overbought territory.

Silver (XAG/USD) Daily Chart

After breaking below the Bollinger Band, the release of dismal Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) brought some additional bearish price action into the mix. However, prices remain below the 20 period Moving Average and the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) remains below -100, a potential indication that XAG/USD may be nearing oversold in the short-term.

For now, support potential remains around the key psychological level of 2600 with the 50% Fibonacci retracement level providing additional support at 2571.5

Silver Sentiment Remains in Favor of the Bulls

Silver (XAG/USD) Snaps Back From Resistance Post-NFP

At the time of writing, retail trader data shows 91.68% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 11.01 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.59% higher than yesterday and 5.42% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 12.40% lower than yesterday and 3.64% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Silver prices may continue to fall.

Yet traders are less net-long than yesterday and compared with last week. Recent changes in sentiment warn that the current Silver price trend may soon reverse higher despite the fact traders remain net-long.
