Talking Points

  • Silver prices gain following demands for safe haven assets.
  • The current rise is corrective in nature given that the overall trend is bearish below the March 31 high of $15.56.
  • Economists project that the ISM Non-Manufacturing sector will rise to 54.1 from 53.4.

Silver prices (FXCM: XAG/USD) are higher by 1.55% today as it appears that the softer equity markets have triggered a demand for safe haven assets such as Gold and Silver.

The current rise amounts to a 50% correction to the decline from the March 31 high of $15.56 to the April 1 low of $14.81. The bulk of this decline occurred following the U.S. NFP publication last Friday.

From a technical point of view, the current rise is seen as corrective given that the overall trend is downward below the March 31 swing high of $15.56.

The trend is bearish as the March 31 swing high of $15.56 is lower than the prior swing high of $16.03, which was formed on March 22.

Support levels are currently at last week’s low of $14.81 followed by the March 1 low of $14.75 and February 29 low of $14.64.

This afternoon, we are looking towards U.S. Trade Balance and ISM Non-Manufacturing reports, with the latter likely to grab most of the attention given that it provides an insight into the important U.S. service sector. Economists predict that the ISM Non-Manufacturing sector will rise to 54.1 from 53.4. Final estimates of Markit U.S. Services are also on deck. See our economic calendar for consensus estimates.
