Silver Retreats While Gold Gets Closer To The $1800 Level

Silver is currently trying to settle below the support level at $23.80 while the U.S. dollar is losing ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index has recently managed to get below the 50 EMA at 92.45 and is trying to develop additional downside momentum. In case this attempt is successful, it will head towards the next support at 92.30 which may provide more support to silver and gold price today, although it should be noted that the recent weakness of the U.S. dollar had no positive impact on precious metals.

In case gold settles below $1800, it will move towards the support at $1775 which will be bearish for silver and other precious metals.

Gold/silver ratio received strong support near the 20 EMA at 74.90 and moved closer to the 76 level. A move above this level will open the way to the test of the resistance at 76.50 which will be bearish for silver.
