Silver Declines As U.S. Dollar Moves Higher

Silver continues its attempts to settle below the support at $23.50 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index has recently managed to get above the resistance at 93.10. It should be noted that this may be a speculative move ahead of Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium, so the situation may change quickly when Powell begins to speak. The next resistance level for the U.S. Dollar Index is located at 93.40, and a move towards this level will be bearish for silver and gold price today.

As a result, gold remains in the range between the support at $1775 and the resistance at $1800.
