XAG/USD daily chart
On the daily chart, the white metal has been under continuous selling pressure from the high of $28.28 made on June 11. XAG/USD took shelter near the multi-month low of $24.70.
If price breaches the 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $25.64, it could start moving higher. In doing so, the first upside target could be found at the $25.90 horizontal resistance level.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads in the oversold zone with bullish crossover. Any uptick in the MACD would meet the next upside target at the $26.25 horizontal resistance level.
That said, XAG/USD bulls would be motivated by the high of July 16 at $26.45.
Alternatively, if price moves lower, it could retest the $25.25 horizontal support level.
XAG/USD bears would make the next move toward the low of July 29 of $24.94 followed by the $24.70 horizontal support level.
