Silver price remains in a downtrend (daily chart). Current price $22.75 is below its multi-week downward sloping trendline (bearish), MACD below zero (bearish), while RSI remains below 50, indicating that downside momentum is still in play. Provided support near the $22.50s fails to hold, the prospects for downside extension toward $19.90 can not be ruled out. Upside risk seen above the $25.50s.
