Meanwhile, China's inflation data for March showed CPI y/y coming in well below expectations (0.7% vs. 1.0% expected) and below the February reading. Inflation pressures are not going to prevent Chinese authorities from adding stimulus to the economy. The AUD received additional support from the news that Australia and China had resolved a trade issue related to barley, potentially easing restrictions on Australian products worth A$20 bn.

Silver is bullish above 24.56. Below the level, the market could move down to 23.80 or so. The 24.56 support level is a weekly high from January. Therefore this is a significant support level and whether the market finds support from it or slips below is indicative of the market strength. If we see demand above the level the market is likely to stay bullish.

Silver is an industrial metal and as such an indicator of the global economy. Therefore, silver and equities are in a sense in the same category and somewhat correlated. In practical terms, this means you should keep an eye on the big trends both in silver and the equity indices in general.
