Silver Tries To Stay Above The 20 EMA

Silver continues its attempts to settle above the resistance at $24.00 while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index has recently made an attempt to settle below the support at the 50 EMA at 92.45 but failed to develop sufficient downside momentum and rebounded back above 92.50. In case the U.S. Dollar Index declines below the 50 EMA, it will move towards the support at 92.30 which will be bullish for silver and gold price today. Weaker dollar is bullish for precious metals as it makes them cheaper for buyers who have other currencies.
