Silver  (XAG/USD) extends weakness into the second straight day on Thursday, as the critical 200-daily moving average (DMA) support at $25.03 is now put to test.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) trades listless below the midline, the bearish territory, allowing room for declines.

The XAG bears are now looking for a strong foothold below 200-DMA, below which a steep drop towards the April 5 low of $24.61 cannot be ruled.

The psychological $24 mark could guard the downside towards the three-month lows of $23.78.
