Silver: Post-Flash Crash Price Action

July 18, 2017

Remember the Silver flash crash?

Nope, me either!

Let’s take a look at the charts to refresh our memory on just what happened:

XAG/USD Daily:

The daily chart shows the drop through trend line support and instant recovery the clearest.

What’s key for me here, is the fact that it happened at that confluence of support between the daily trend line and horizontal swing low. The endless stops that would have been just below here added to the already illiquid Asian session trading no doubt compounded the drop.

XAG/USD Hourly:

But after zooming into the hourly, you can now see that price has essentially ignored the flash crash drop and reactivated the daily trend line support level.

With Silver known for its ability to maintain trends after higher time frame support/resistance levels hold, it will be interesting to see if we can get an intraday stepping pattern to build a long around down here.
