Silver is trading with a downward bias now heading for the critical support level at 16.90, as we mentioned this morning. This level represents the neckline of the head-and-shoulders pattern that appears in the image. Therefore, breaking it will confirm the extension of the bearish wave on the short- term basis to reach 15.65 levels. So, our bearish trend expectations will remain valid for today provided that the metal holds below 17.70 and the most important 18.00. Breaching these levels represents the key of regaining the bullish trend, so its next target located at 18.60.
The expected trading range for today is between 16.70 support and 17.70 resistance.
