Technical Analysis

Silver prices whipsawed and moved lower. Support is seen near the 10-day moving average of 22.09. Resistance is seen near the 50-day moving average at 23.08.

The 50-day moving average remains crossed under the 200-day moving average, which is a headwind for XAG/USD and indicates downward momentum.

Short-term momentum has turned negative as the fast stochastic generated a crossover sell signal.
