  • Sustained trading below 50-HMA, bearish MACD favor sellers, 200-HMA adds filters to the downside.

While late-December top near $26.78 offers additional support, a break of which may not hesitate to conquer the $26.00 round-figure.

Alternatively, an upside break of 50-HMA, currently at $27.20, will have multiple resistances near $27.40 and $27.65 ahead of challenging Wednesday’s high of $27.92.

During the silver buyers’ dominance past-$27.92, September 2020 peak surrounding $28.90 and the $29.00 can offer intermediate stops before pushing them to the year 2020 high of $29.85.
