Silver Prices: Waiting For The Big Break

Silver Prices: Waiting For The Big Break

Alejandro Zambrano, Market Analyst

Talking points

  • Price remains trendless and hardly reacts to developments in other markets
  • I’d wait for a break to the December low of $13.61

Silver prices (FXCM: XAG/USD) remain range bound making it hard to profit as the market is not moving. While volatility is low today, when price finally breaksthe $13.61 – $14.40 range it will be very interesting to trade silver.

Range-traders are expected to enter long positions near $13.75 with stops below the December low of $13.61. Take profit orders will most likely be placed in the vicinity of $14.25 (near upper end of current range).

If and when and price reaches $14.25, the same traders will probably short with stop loss orders above the December 28 high of $14.40.

Longer-Term Traders Wait

On the other hand, macro traders and trend-followers will not buy silver near the lower end of the recent range. Instead, they will wait for a break to the December low of $13.61 given that the longer-term trend is bearish. The macro-outlook is also bearish as the Fed projects a raise to current rates in 2016, which should underpin the Dollar.
