Uncertainty remains the keyword to decipher the current scenario, as investors are trying to predict the evolution of the situation between Russia and Ukraine.
Although silver’s volatility is declining, it is still above the levels seen in the second part of 2021.
Earlier this week, the Federal Reserve increased interest rates, with investors now expecting the US Central bank to continue to hike rates in the next few months.
Checking the CME FedWatch Tool we can see that markets are pricing rates to be in the fork between 2 and 2.25% by the end of 2022. Of course, this will remain a crucial market driver for stock markets and for the precious metal sector.
The correlation between gold and silver is usually strong with the last few days being no exception. Following the decline of gold, the grey metal has fallen below $25, before rebounding to $25.50 in the last 24 hours.
Despite having lost around 2% this week, the silver performance in 2022 is still largely positive, with a year to date gain of close to 9%.
Analysing the charts, we can find for the silver price a first resistance zone at $25.7.
A surpass of this level could open space for the further rebound to $26.3-26.4, while the next key level would be placed at $27.2 – the high reached on the 8th of March.
However, a decline below $25.3, could trigger a new bearish impulse, with a potential test of the $24.6-24.7 support zone.
