Silver (XAG/USD) Slips Through Support, Platinum Indecisive

A shift in risk sentiment, ensuing from the reopening of global economies, has recently weighed on major commodities, pushing Silver and Platinum prices to key Fibonacci support. With long term treasury yields on the rise; buoyed by inflationary concerns and the Federal Reserve’s persistent loose monetary policy, ‘safe haven’ assets such as Silver and Gold, continue to attract investors who are looking for a means of diversification as well as a hedge against future inflationary pressure. However, recent US Dollar strength, a known catalyst of price action, has recently supported the downward trajectory for both Silver and Platinum, hindering further progression from February highs.

Meanwhile Platinum, the major commodity commonly used in the auto motor industry to reduce emissions, has been at the discretion of supply as Emerging markets continue to experience decreases in short-term supply, hindering the progression of bullish continuation, with prices stalling at Fibonacci support while the CCI falls into oversold territory.
