Daily Silver News: April 1 – Silver Price Is Back Above $25

Silver is still relatively weaker than the record-breaking gold.

The silver futures contract gained 0.66% on Thursday, March 28, as it extended its rebound from Wednesday. It basically continued sideways after slightly extending its short-term downtrend last week.

Recently, silver was relatively weaker than gold, still trading below a local high from mid-December. On February 14, it dipped slightly below the January 22 local low of around $22, and it was the lowest since mid-November.

Today, silver is trading higher following new records in gold price, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
