Greenback Strengthens, Silver Price (XAGUSD) Seems Stably

Greenback Strengthens, Silver Price (XAGUSD) Seems Stably

USDCAD attempts to rebound

Intraday Market Analysis – USD Gains Support - 1

The US dollar rallied after FOMC minutes showed the central bank’s plan to reduce its balance sheet. The pair found support at 1.2400 after the RSI went deeply into the oversold territory.

A break above 1.2500 prompted sellers to cover their latest bets, easing the downward pressure in the process. The bulls need to clear offers near 1.2590 before they could push for a sustainable bounce.

Failing that, further weakness could drive price action to October’s lows around 1.2300.

NZDUSD breaks support

Intraday Market Analysis – USD Gains Support - 2

The New Zealand dollar softened against its US counterpart after hawkish Fed minutes. The rally came to a halt in the supply zone around 0.7050 from last November’s sell-off.

0.6900 was important support and its breach forced short-term buyers to bail out. As the kiwi grinds 0.6875 over the 30-day moving average, an oversold RSI may cause a rebound.

A deeper correction may send the pair to 0.6800 and cause a bearish reversal. The bulls need to reclaim 0.6940 to regain the upper hand.

XAGUSD tests major support

Intraday Market Analysis – USD Gains Support - 3

Silver struggles as the greenback recovers across the board. A bearish MA cross on the daily chart suggests a deterioration in the market mood.

Buyers’ struggle to lift offers at the psychological level of 25.00 indicates prevailing strong selling pressure. Sentiment has become cautious as the precious metal revisits 24.00.

Price action could be vulnerable to another round of sell-off if the bears succeed in pushing below this critical floor. Following that, 23.30 would be the next target.
