Daily Silver News: January 23 – Silver Price Bounced From $22

Silver sold off despite gold trading sideways; today it’s bouncing.

The silver futures contract lost 1.83% on Monday, January 22, as it broke below its recent local lows despite a further consolidation of the gold price. Yesterday, silver was the lowest since mid-November, and it was close to the $22 price level. Last week, silver was declining following economic data, stronger U.S. dollar. Before the Fed’s announcement on December 13, silver was extending the downtrend that started on December 4 after an overnight short squeeze price action in gold price.

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