Silver is holding firm in Asia and may be a compelling technical setup on the daily chart also.
Bulls will seek an upside extension from a solid daily support structure.
XAG/USD was ending on the bid on Thursday but was unable to interrupt above the R1 pivot and 4-hour resistance in reaching a high of $28.00.
With that being said, there are bullish prospects, as illustrated below, should the worth hold at currently support.
Meanwhile, the bearing metal had travelled from a coffee of $27.39 and ended the day 0.13% higher but the gold to silver ratio was slightly higher by 0.27% as gold was favoured.
The greenback was on the backfoot again, giving back its gains made the prior day following a surprise that came in several Federal Open Market Committee policymaker’s discussions within the minutes on tapering of state bond purchases.
The members had discussed that it might be appropriate “at some point” should economic recovery still gather steam. Nonetheless, the greenback and US yields both melted on Thursday which helped support the commodity sectors in an improved risk environment.

Failures to maneuver higher at this juncture put the bears back responsible with sights of the breaking below the support structure made from the mid-May highs near 27.60.
This guards the first May highs because the next support block slightly below 27 the figure.
However, there’s a compelling argument from a daily perspective as follows:
Should the worth hold the present daily support, then an upwards continuation are going to be on the cards in line with the broader trend.
