Declining Gold/Silver Ratio Provides Support To Silver

Silver is currently trading near the support level at $27.00 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index managed to settle above the resistance at 90.50 and is currently trying to settle above the next resistance level at the 20 EMA at 90.65. If this attempt is successful, the U.S. Dollar Index will head towards the next resistance at the 50 EMA at 90.80 which will be bearish for silver and gold price today.

Gold managed to settle below the support level at $1830 and is moving towards the next material support level at $1800. If gold manages to settle below $1800, it wil gain additional downside momentum which will be bearish for silver and other precious metals.

It should be noted that the recent weakness in the gold market is a worrisome development for silver bulls. Right now, the decline of gold/silver ratio, which is currently trying to settle below the 67 level, provides some support to silver. However, if gold/silver ratio fails to continue its downside move while gold moves lower, silver will find itself under pressure.Advertisement
