Silver in a Bullish Bias; Next Target 15.30

Written by
Published in Commodites & Metals

The white metal started the year on a stronger footing, giving away all the losses posted on November (-10%) and December (-2%) on the back of a weaker U.S. dollar. The XAG/USD has roared back almost 12% since its December low and it seems that the metal is moving towards the 2016 highs. It may be too early to say the silver is looking bullish again following such a long period of consolidation, but there is certainly a slight bullish bias being seen in the metal right now. It is very significant that the white metal has managed to overcome the 200-SMA on the daily chart, as well as the significant zone of 14.50 – 14.70.

On the 4-hour chart, the silver is traded in a wide range between 14.60 and 16.14. Following a sharp fall on the NFP day on Friday 01 April, the precious metal recovered almost the half of its losses and is testing the critical level at 15.12.

Going to a lower timeframe, the picture shows that the XAG/USD will continue its recovery above the significant barrier at 15.12. A break above that level will open the way towards the sloping trend line near 15.30 which coincides with the 200-SMA on the 4-hour chart. However, I would expect a battle to take place around 15.12 and the metal to test it again from the upside before it will rally upwards.

The medium-term traders should watch the 14.50 level, as I consider this level a turning point for the metal since it coincides with the long term descending trend line which started back in March 2013, before we test the critical zone at 16.00 – 16.50.

UK Brent Crude Oil Soars!

Written by
Published in Commodites & Metals

The oil prices rebounded from the record lows has been at the beginning of 2016 and has rallied upwards surpassing $40 per barrel on Tuesday, after recording a seventh consecutive day of gains at the start of the month. Brent Crude oil was at $40.40 (+4.65% for the day) a barrel in early Tuesday trading, up 0.75%, from their last close and almost 16% up from their 2016 low on January 21. The next stop for the bulls will be the $43.15 barrier, which coincides with the 200-SMA on the daily chart. After it will reach the aforementioned level, a correction is likely. 

It's worth to note, that the 50-SMA crossed above both the 100-SMA and the 200-SMA on the 4-hour chart signaling for a bullish bias.
