Silver closed lower on Monday as it extended last week's breakout below the July-August uptrend line crossing. The low-range close set the stage for a steady to lower opening on Tuesday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bearish signalling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If it extends this month's decline, the reaction low crossing is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing would temper the near-term bearish outlook.
