Daily Silver News: January 12 – Silver Is Back Above $23

Silver retraces its yesterday’s declines, follows gold’s rally.

The silver futures contract lost 1.57% on Thursday, January 11, as it broke below the recent local lows on the Consumer Price Index release, strengthening U.S. dollar. The market went below $23 mark, and it was the lowest since mid-November. 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 and above the $23 level again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
