The Price of Silver Has Reached Its Highest Level in Over Three Years

As indicated by the XAG/USD chart today, the intraday price of silver reached $29.84 per ounce yesterday, while the previous yearly high on 12 April was $29.79. The last time this price was seen was in February 2021.

It is worth noting that today the price of silver is behaving more bullishly than the price of gold, which is approximately 1.5% below its April high.

The main factor contributing to the rise in the price of silver is likely the weakening of the US dollar, as traders expect the Federal Reserve to ease monetary policy.

Can the price of silver continue to rise? Analysts are generally bullish. As CNBC reports:
→ Saxo Bank strategists recently stated in an analytical review that the price of silver could rise to $30, while gold could soon test the $2,400 level.
→ Analysts at ROTH Capital Partners forecast that the prices of gold and silver will rise even higher in the coming months. According to JC O'Hara, Chief Market Technician, if the price breaks the $30 level, "there will be few resistance levels until the $35/$37 range."

Let’s provide more data for a technical analysis of the silver market.

The daily XAG/USD chart shows that:
→ the price of silver is moving within an upward channel (shown in blue);
→ in April, the price sharply declined after briefly exceeding the upper boundary of the channel (a sign of seller activity);
→ today the price of silver is again near the upper boundary, which should be considered as resistance;
→ the psychological level of $30 could also be an obstacle for the bulls;
→ judging by the RSI, the market may be overbought.

Note the history of the XAG/USD chart – in 2020 and 2021, the price of silver already tried to surpass the $30 level but turned downward. It is possible that we will soon witness another bullish attempt at this important "round" price level.
