Silver  (XAG/USD) is nursing losses around the $25 level after the downward spiral seen so far this week.

The bears take a breather before resuming the downtrend, as the daily technical setup remains in their favor.

XAG/USD awaits a strong catalyst for the next leg towards the 200-day simple moving average (DMA), which is located at $24.68.

The next line of defense for the bulls would be seen at the January lows of $24.19. A break below which a sharp sell-off could be triggered, exposing the $23 round figure.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) trades flat at 39.65, suggesting that the bearish bias remains well in place.

Further, Tuesday’s closing below the crucial 100-DMA at $25.63 adds credence to the downside bias.
