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.

XAG/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the resistance at $18.20 had been invalidated and the price showed every sign of breaking higher still, with no key resistance ahead until $18.69.

I took a bullish bias on Silver in USD terms for the day.

This was a good call as the price has continued to advance all the way to $18.63.

The action has tailed off, but it is better to ride this very strong bullish movement until it stops instead of trying to pick a top.

I remain very bullish on Silver, but I also note that the price has just begun to falter a little slightly below the resistance level shown in the price chart below at $18.67. A sustained break above that level would signify that the price could take off all the way to $19 or even $20 which should be a major psychological level.

I am bullish above $18.67 today.XAGUSDRegarding the USD, there will be a release of Preliminary GDP data at 1:30pm London time.
