Dec ’19 silver futures are trading in the same narrow range they have been since September 9th as the rally pauses and global anxiety seems to stabilize. Silver prices have been supported by a softening dollar index and bullish ECB news. As the fear of recession fades and the trade war simmers down the confidence in other markets, it puts pressure on the top heavy precious metals. Bears are cautious to be short on silver though because a single tweet could wipe out the positive tone in other markets. Silver according to my analysis is still undervalued compared to gold, which could provide opportunity for the bulls.
