Daily Silver News: February 28 – Silver Is Closer to Monday’s Low Again

Silver price is lower, as it continues to trade within a consolidation.

The silver futures contract gained 1.03% on Tuesday, February 27, as it retraced some of its Monday’s sell-off of 2%, extending a short-term consolidation below the $23 level. The market followed a rebound in gold prices yesterday, which was caused by weakening U.S. dollar. Last week, the market retraced more of the previous week’s run-up despite weaker U.S. dollar and stable gold prices. On February 14, it dipped slightly below the January 22 local low of around $22.

Today silver is retracing yesterday’s advance, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
