On the daily timeframe, XAGUSD: D1 overcame the resistance line of the downtrend. Further price increase is possible in case of maintaining the high world demand and the presence of global economic and political risks.
- The Parabolic indicator gives a bullish signal.
- The Bollinger bands have widened, which means higher volatility.
- The RSI indicator is near 50. It has formed a positive divergence.
- The MACD indicator gives a bullish signal.
The bullish momentum may develop in case XAGUSD exceeds the 200-dayt moving average line at 17.17. This level may serve as an entry point. The initial stop loss may be placed below the Parabolic signal at 16.3. After opening the pending order, we shall move the stop to the next fractal low following the Bollinger and Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the potential profit/loss to the breakeven point. More risk-averse traders may switch to the 4-hour chart after the trade and place there a stop loss moving it in the direction of the trade. If the price meets the stop level at 16.3 without reaching the order at 17.17 we recommend cancelling the position: the market sustains internal changes that were not taken into account.
Summary of technical analysis
