XAG/USD was ending on the bid on Thursday but was unable to break above the R1 pivot and 4-hour resistance in reaching a high of $28.00.

This guards the early May highs as the next support block just below 27 the figure.  

However, there is a compelling argument from a daily perspective as follows:

Should the price hold the current daily support, then an upwards continuation will be on the cards in line with the broader trend.
