The bears were able to get the upper hand and not only over this range but price also broke through a significant supply zone based on maximum volume transactions at the US$26.11 price zone. This results in a successful second leg of a downtrend within the broad sideways range fulfilling the bear flag marked in red lines.

The weekly chart of Silver shows in white the last eight months’ sideways range. Within that range, we had three dominant zones. Trading at the bottom of range three (green box) suggests the highest likelihood of turning point to be at trading prices right at this moment or below. (all the way down to US$22.50).

In short, while prices trade within the yellow circle price range, US$22.50 to US$25.05 mining chart evaluation is advised.
