I've been looking a lot at silver technicals recently and decided that the moving average is practically useless as an indicator when your underlying has that much volatility. I found that MACD crossovers significantly lagged actual trend changes - to the point that they were not predictive. I can't say the same for weekly MACD as that would point more to longer term trends.

IMO, RSI and CMF Oscillator generate better signals.
