Silver closed sharply lower on Wednesday as it extended the decline off last week's high. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends today's decline, the reaction low crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 10-day moving average crossing would temper the near-term bearish outlook.
