Karachi, March 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): Silver
Silver markets initially rallied during the trading session yesterday, showing signs of exhaustion. By forming a bit of a shooting star, that is a very negative sign for investors, and it’s likely that the $15.60 level is going to continue to cause a significant amount of resistance. Ultimately, even though the Gold markets look very bullish, it appears that silver is starting to diverge from gold. If that’s the case, one of these precious metals markets are rapidly becoming mispriced. Granted, silver does tend to lag gold, so there is the possibility that silver place catch up. At this point, if it break down below the $15.45 level, it probably have further downside ahead. Alternately, if it break above the $15.60 level, it will more than likely continue to go much higher, perhaps the $16.00 level. Therefore silver is going to be difficult in the short term.

Silver prices on the European market also hit a two-week high yesterday, extending gains for the second day in a row, supported by the fall of the US dollar against a basket of currencies and the current high demand for precious metals as safe havens.

Silver prices gained 1.2% on Tuesday, the second gain in the last three days, with most of the US dollar denominated metals climbing. The continued decline of the dollar levels comes after a 10-year Treasury yields fall to a two-month low.
