Silver Is Little Changed On Labor Day Holiday In U.S.
Silver continues to trade near the 20 EMA at $26.70 as the U.S. dollar remains mostly flat against a broad basket of currencies.
U.S. Dollar Index is once again trying to settle above the key 93 level. Today, the U.S. financial markets are closed due to Labor Day holiday, so trading dynamics of the American currency may be muted.
However, if the U.S. Dollar Index manages to gain upside momentum above the 93 level, silver may find itself under significant pressure.
Meanwhile, gold remains below the 20 EMA at $1945. In the recent trading sessions, the 20 EMA served as a significant resistance level for gold. In case gold fails to get above the 20 EMA in the upcoming trading sessions, it will likely gain more downside momentum which will be bearish for silver.
Gold/silver ratio continues to trade in a range between 71 and 73. Gold/silver ratio has been in this range since mid-August and made a single attempt to move out of the range when it tested the support at 69.50. If gold/silver ratio continues its previous downside trend, silver will have good chances to test the nearest resistance level at $27.75.
Silver is currently trying to find support near the key 20 EMA level. In case silver manages to stay above the 20 EMA, it will gain more upside momentum and head towards the test of the next resistance level at $27.75.
