Silver price consolidates for the fourth straight day after hitting a weekly high of $23.52. However, the white metal faces solid resistance and trades sideways on Wednesday. At the time of typing, the XAG/USD is trading at $23.32 for a gain of 0.40%.
XAG/USD Price action
On Wednesday, the XAG/USD failed to sustain the early break above March’s 28 high of $23.37, which would open the door to test the week’s low at $22.83 once sellers break the $23.00 psychological level. That would open the door for a leg down, and if the XAG/USD tumbles below the former, that could exacerbate a test of the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $22.32.
On the flip side, with Silver’s buyers cracking $23.50, upside risks would lie at $24.00, followed by a test of the YTD high at $24.63.
In the short term, the XAG/USD 4-hour chart portrays the white metal as neutral to upward bias, and it might test $23.50 soon. A breach of the latter will clear the path to test higher pivot points, like #2 at $23.70, before assaulting R3 at $24.04.
