Silver technical outlook

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator on the four-hour chart rose above 50 with Tuesday’s upsurge, suggesting that the bullish momentum is gathering strength and there is more room on the upside before XAG/USD turns oversold. Additionally, the pair broke above the 20-SMA on the same chart, confirming the bullish bias.

On the upside, the initial hurdle is located at $26.20 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of Feb. 25 – Mar. 5 drop) ahead of $26.50 (Fibonacci 50% retracement) and $26.80 (100-period SMA, 200-period SMA).

Supports, on the other hand, could be seen at $25.40 (20-period SMA) and $25 (psychological level, static support).
