Gold Trading Higher, But Don't Forget Silver

Gold Trading Higher, But Don't Forget Silver

FOREX.com  | Oct 08, 2019 16:50

With the addition of more Chinese technologies companies to the blacklist yesterday evening, gold is trading higher today, currently up .60%. But don’t forget about silver, which has been trading higher as well since June, currently up almost 1.5%. However, the white metal has a lot of work to do if it is going to continue to move higher, as there is a great deal of resistance it needs to get through first.

Silver had been in an upward sloping channel since the beginning of June and peaked in early September. Since September 4th, silver has been pulling back in a channel formation and has bounced off the 50% Fibonacci retracement level from the May 27th low to the September 4th high. Although there is still time left in the day, if silver were to close 17.51, price would put in a bullish engulfing candlestick on a daily timeframe, which is a 2-candlestick bullish pattern.
