However, it is said that during the next meeting scheduled for April 27th the central bank will be forced to announce new measures.
China’s PPI came out worse than expected, thus confirming the economic slowdown. The inflation and consumer prices reports exceeded the forecast considerably. The growing consumer inflation may prevent the People’s bank of china from proceeding to further economic stimulation.

On breaking below the level, the price gets a chance to reach 1600. However, if the support stays unbroken, the price may rebound and test 1650. In order to resume the rally, the price will have to break and consolidate below 1646. The closest targets of the bullish scenario are 1665, 1675.
As for silver, the price broke below 31.75, which suggests that it is ready to resume the downswing. A re-consolidation below the level will confirm the intension. The targets of the bearish scenario are 31.50, 31.25, 31-30.90. If silver fails to consolidate below 31.75, there is high probability that of a rally up to 32.0. The rally will be resumed only if the price consolidates above 32.0. In this case, the price may reach 32.25-32.50.
