Silver closed sharply lower on Wednesday and below the 20-day moving average crossing confirming that a short-term top has been posted. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI have turned bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends this week's decline, the reaction low crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 10-day moving average crossing are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted.
