Daily Silver News: December 5 – Silver Price Is Below $25 Again

Silver followed fake rally in gold yesterday and today it extends the decline.

The silver futures contract lost 3.67% on Monday, December 4 after rallying on gold’s short squeeze and reaching new medium-term high of $26.34. The market has quickly reversed its overnight rally and continued lower throughout the day. Silver retraced some of its last week’s rally and it closed below $25 mark yesterday. Recently it retraced all of its November declines following lower-than-expected Consumer Price Index release. On November 13 silver bounced from new local low of $21.92.

Today silver is extending its yesterday’s intraday sell-off as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
