askSlim.com Technical Briefing: The weekly cycle analysis suggests that AG is in a rising phase in an overall negative cycle configuration. On the above chart, the gray dashed cycles are our Silver Future weekly cycles. We believe that the Silver market has formed an important bottom and that this will be a significant tailwind for AG moving forward. AG’s next projected intermediate-term low is due in mid-August.

On the upside, there are intermediate-term resistances at 10.87 and 12.69. On the downside, there is intermediate-term support at 8.60 followed by another zone of support from 7.757.07. For the bulls to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would need to see a weekly close above 10.87.
