Silver (XAG/USD) Slips Through Support, Platinum Indecisive

Silver (XAG/USD) Slips Through Support, Platinum Indecisive

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

Silver (XAG/USD), Platinum Forecast


A shift in risk sentiment, ensuing from the reopening of global economies, have recently weighed on major commodities, pushing Silver and Platinum prices to key Fibonacci support. With long term treasury yields on the rise; buoyed by inflationary concerns and the Federal Reserve’s persistent loose monetary policy, ‘safe haven’ assets such as Silver and Gold, continue to attract investors who are looking for a means of diversification as well as a hedge against future inflationary pressure. However, recent US Dollar strength, a known catalyst of price action, has recently supported the downward trajectory for both Silver and Platinum, hindering further progression from February highs.
