Daily Silver News: January 11 – Silver Price Keeps Going Sideways

Silver trades higher before the important consumer inflation data.

The silver futures contract lost 0.11% on Wednesday, January 10, as it continued to fluctuate above the $23 price level. Last Friday, silver retraced some of its earlier decline after a better-than-expected monthly jobs data release, but the market remained close to $23 level. Last Wednesday, it sold off by 3.3% after a breakdown in gold price on strengthening U.S. dollar and declining stock markets. Before the Fed’s announcement on December 13, it was extending the downtrend that started on December 4 after an overnight short squeeze price action in gold price.

Today silver is trading higher, but still within a consolidation, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The silver price is 0.6% higher, as it is trading along $23.20. What about the other precious metals? Gold is 0.5% higher, platinum is 0.3% higher and palladium is 0.6% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.

Yesterday’s Final Wholesale Inventories release has been as expected at -0.2% m/m. Today we will get the important Consumer Price Index release, along with the Core CPI number and Unemployment Claims at 8:30 a.m. There will likely be an increased volatility following that data release.
