Silver is licking its wounds after reaching the lowest levels in two weeks just below the $25 threshold.

The industrial metal defends critical support, benefiting from the optimism surrounding the US infrastructure spending. According to reports, the Biden administration is mulling a $4 trillion jobs, infrastructure spending proposal.

How is XAG/USD positioned on the charts?

The  Technical Confluences Detector  is backing the fundamental view, as Silver continues to hold above  powerful support at $24.95/24.90.

The support line is the confluence of the pivot point one-week S3, pivot point one-month S1 and the two-week lows.

A breach of the latter would expose the $24.79 support area, where the Bollinger Band one-day Lower lies.

Further south, the pivot point one-day S3 at $24.55 would be on the sellers’ minds.

Alternatively, the XAG bulls face a strong hurled around $25.25, the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, SMA50 one-hour and Fibonacci 161.8% one-week.

The next relevant resistance awaits at $25.40, the pivot point one-week S2.

A sharp rally towards the $25.65 level, the intersection of the SMA100 and SMA5 one-day, cannot be ruled if the abovementioned barrier is taken out.
