Silver (XAG/USD) Steps Back After Fed Meeting Drives Demand Higher

Silver (XAG/USD) Steps Back After Fed Meeting Drives Demand Higher

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

Silver Price Forecast:


Fundamental drivers have continued to support the demand for Silver, Gold and other safe-haven assets as additional Fiscal aid and the Fed’s further dovish tone continue to supportrisk-on sentiment. Despite a combination of the vaccine rollout program and a drastic decrease in the number of Coronavirus cases both contributing to renewed hopes of an economic recovery, inflationary concerns ensuing from the Federal Reserve’s continued dovish tone have hindered the ability for US Dollar bulls to achieve further gains, with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell emphasizing both the importance and necessity of the larger stimulus package, with higher employment remaining at the forefront of policy objectives for the foreseeable future.

On the contrary, resistance remains at 2800, with the 50% Fibonacci retracement level forming an additional layer of resistance at 2906.2.

Silver Client Sentiment

Silver (XAG/USD) Steps Back After Fed Meeting Drives Demand Higher

At the time of writing, retail trader data shows 89.18% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 8.24 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 3.98% lower than yesterday and 6.93% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.38% lower than yesterday and 18.31% 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.

Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed Silver trading bias.
