■Silver falls 2.18%, trading at $30.10, as strong US business activity data impacts the market.

■Key support levels: $30.00 psychological level, April 12 high at $29.79, and $29.00.

■Additional support at May 18, 2021, high of $28.74 and June 10, 2021, high of $28.28.

Silver price tumbled more than 2% on Thursday as economic data from the United States showed that business activity is faring well amid a high interest rates economy. At the time of writing, the XAG/USD trades at $30.10, down 2.18%.


XAG/USD Price Analysis: Technical outlook


Silver’s uptrend remains intact, but the rapid and strong movement has led to a mean reversion. The buyer’s momentum is fading, as hinted by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) falling below the 70.00 level, aiming toward the 50-midline. This suggests that sellers are gathering control.


Given this context, the first support level for XAG/USD would be the $30.00 psychological level. If further weakness occurs, the next support level would be the April 12 high, now turned support, at $29.79, followed by $29.00. Additional key support levels include the May 18, 2021, high at $28.74, and the June 10, 2021, high at $28.28.
