In Tuesday’s session, the Silver Spot price XAG/USD lost momentum and failed to conquer the 200-day Simple Moving Average. The main reason was that the US Treasury yields, often seen as the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding metals, recovered as markets await Wednesday's Federal Reserve (Fed) decision.
The 10-year bond yield reached 4.34% and trades near the crucial 4.36% threshold, which, in case of breaking it, would set a multi-year high since 2007. In addition, The 2-year yield stands at 5.08% with a 0.52% increase, while the 5-year yield is at 4.48%, up by 0.31%.
For Wednesday's Federal Reserve (Fed) decisions, despite markets anticipating a pause, a hawkish tone given by Chair Powell could boost US yields and apply further pressure on the grey metal. The US economy remains strong, mainly driven by the Services sector, while the US labour market is showing a mixed picture, and as the Fed want to see a cool down to mitigate inflation risks, it will likely leave the door open for one last hike.
The technical analysis of the daily chart suggests a neutral to bearish stance for XAG/USD as the bears work on staging a recovery. With a downward trend below its midline, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggests that the bear’s momentum is strengthening, while the Moving Average Convergence (MACD) exhibits stagnant red bars. Moreover, the pair is below the 20,100 and 200-day Simple Moving Averages (SMAs), implying that the bears retain control on a broader scale, leaving the buyers vulnerable.
Support levels: $23.00, $22.80, $22.50
Resistance levels: $23.50 - 70 (200, 20 and 100-day SMA convergence),$24.00, $24.30
