Silver considered as precious and industrial metal also. Demand for silver can rise after high prices in Gold as alternative option.US fed future rate hike will be limited and depends on US growth and inflation data.
Long term bond yields falling and green back US dollar weakening surge precious metal prices.
Hedge funds that actively trade on Gold and Silver on basis of GOLD to silver ratio building their bets on under-performing silver
Economic data like Unemployment rate and non farm payroll data came supporting and in line with Fed assumption
Technically silver breakouts from price consolidation band to mark year end trade near above $15.00 mark. The $15 level of course is psychologically important, and structurally as well. It has been lagging the gold market which has of course broken out already.
Break out target comes towards the $15.70 to $16 level next. Ultimately, I think that we break above there and go to the $17 level as well.
Above $16 new price target range trajectory range comes out.
Price recently broke 200 days simple moving average on daily charts and approaching major resistance level of $15.50-$15.55 break of it can raise price to $15.90-$16.
Major support and resistance levels as below:
