Silver Price Forecast – Silver markets drift lower during holiday

Christopher Lewis

Silver markets fell a bit during the trading session on Thursday, reaching down to fill the gap again. That being the case, the $15.25 level is a support area, but if we do break down below there it’s likely that we will test the 200 day EMA underneath which is colored in blue. That being the case, I suspect that the buyers could return but let us not forget that we have a massive gap underneath that hasn’t quite been filled yet, stretching down to the $15.00 level. Ultimately, this is a market that is going to be driven by the US dollar which of course is going to be driven by the jobs number on Friday.

All things being equal though, I am bullish of silver longer-term and therefore I think that a pullback towards the $15.00 level actually represents a nice value that I’m willing to take advantage of at the first signs of a bounce. To the upside, if we were to turn around and break above the $15.50 level, then we probably go to the $15.75 level, perhaps even the $60.00 level after that. I expect a lot of volatility, but quite frankly this will probably be dollar driven more than anything else.

As we are above both the 50 and the 200 day EMA indicators, I suspect that longer-term traders are starting to look at this as a potential investment as well, and that of course helps. Ultimately, buying dips continues to be the best way to play this market from everything I see.
