Silver pierced 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (Fibo.) of May-September 2021 downtrend to refresh seven-month high on Tuesday. Following that, an upward sloping trend line from September 2021 challenged the metal’s buyers but couldn’t hold the forte. Also acting as the key hurdle is the overbought RSI conditions suggesting a pullback. Given the quote’s sustained trading above the $26.20 trend line figure, the 78.6% Fibo. level surrounding $27.15 and multiple levels marked during mid-2021 around $28.20 will question the commodity’s rally targeting the May 2021 peak of $28.72.
Alternatively, a pullback in silver prices, which is widely anticipated, needs validation from the late 2021 peak of $25.35. Following that, January’s high of $24.68 and the 200-DMA near $24.10 will gain the market’s attention. If at all the commodity prices break $24.10 DMA support, it becomes vulnerable to test the 2022 bottom close to $22.00. During the fall, the 100-DMA level of $23.50 may act as an intermediate halt.
To sum up, silver prices battle short-term key resistance line as the oscillators suggest a pullback move.
