XAG/USD daily chart

On the daily chart, the white metal has been consolidating in a broader trading range of $27.00-$28-50, before breaking the range on June 16. XAG/USD tested the levels last seen in April.

If price makes sustained moves above the intraday high at $25.96, then it could continue to move higher. The first target could be found at the previous day’s high at $26.29.

The  Moving Average Convergence Divergence ( MACD) indicator holds onto the oversold zone with stretched selling conditions. Any uptick in the MACD would allow bulls to take over the $26.60 horizontal resistance level.

That said, XAG/USD  would be motivated to test the high of June 17 in the vicinity of the  $27.25 area.

Alternatively, if price decisively breaks the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $25.70, then it could meet its first lower target at the low of June 21 at $25.55.

A daily close below the mentioned level could prompt the bulls to march toward April 15 low at $25.32 followed by the $25.00 horizontal support level.
