The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.
The price of spot silver has risen again dramatically, after spending several days off its highs. The price has risen by more than 2.60% since the start of the previous Tokyo session and looks set to rise higher as it breaks to new 18-month high prices, which should be a bullish sign.
There are two obstacles that bulls might want to consider: the major psychological level at $17.50 which is very close at the time of writing, and the key resistance level above that at $17.69.
The bullish picture is arguably increased by the fact that Gold is also breaking to new multi-year high prices above $1525.
