Silver heading south after latest rebound

Silver spent much of August on the front foot as it regained ground lost in the first week of the month.

However, that sharp decline on 6-9 August highlighted the ongoing bearish trend seen for this precious metal, with the commodity losing 18% over the past four months. Unfortunately for the silver bugs, that trend looks likely to persist from here.

The latest rebound took us back into the 61.8% Fibonacci resistance level at $24.81, with price turning lower since.

Meanwhile, looking at the four-hour chart we can see that the initial rally up through wedge resistance has since given way to a bearish breakdown. The decline through $23.75 confirms the bearish reversal signal, with further downside expected from here.

We are also seeing intraday lower highs take shape, providing opportunities for this trading on the shorter timeframes. The standard deviation channel highlights that intraday downtrend, with a break through $24.30 required to bring about a more positive near-term outlook. Until then, further downside looks likely from here.

    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
