Bulls need to overcome $15.87 resistance level: silver technical analysis

Silver technical analysis

Silver has risen to its highest trading level since 12 March, however, unlike gold the metal has failed to rally to fresh 2020 trading highs.

Silver price technical analysis shows that bulls need to overcome key trendline resistance, around the $15.87 level, to force a breakout from a falling wedge pattern. 

Silver medium-term price trend

Silver has continued to build on its recent gains, with the multi-week recovery from the $11.60 level so far finding resistance from just below the $16.00 level.

Silver technical analysis over the medium-term shows that a breakout above the $15.87 level may see the metal testing towards the $16.50 area.

Silver technical analysis

The daily time frame clearly shows that price has tested the top of a falling wedge pattern, around the $15.87 level. Failure to break above the wedge has prompted a minor technical pullback.

According to the size of the wedge pattern, a bullish breakout could prompt silver prices to rally towards the $20.00 level over the medium-term. However, the $16.50 level appears to be the initial upside target if a bullish breakout does take place.

The lower time frames currently show that price is making bullish higher highs and higher lows, and silver is still attracting dip-buying interest.

Silver technical analysis

A loss of the $15.10 level would break the bullish sequence of higher lows, and encourage technical selling towards silver.

With this in mind, traders should expect a reaction in silver prices once the $15.87 or $15.10 price range is breached. 

Key short-term support below the $15.10 level is found at the $14.80 and $14.50 level, while key short-term resistance above the $15.87 level is found at the $16.50 and $17.00 levels.

Silver technical summary

Silver price technical analysis indicates that silver may trade in a wide range, between the $15.10 and $15.87 levels, before the next major move occurs. The daily time frame clearly shows that silver is still trading within a large falling wedge pattern.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
