Daily Silver News: July 10 – Silver Continues Sideways

Silver price remains above $31; Powell and tomorrow’s CPI in focus.

The silver futures contract gained 0.46% on Tuesday, July 9, as it extended a short-term consolidation following last Friday’s rally of almost 3%. Since Friday, it has been fluctuating due to a retreat in gold prices, stronger U.S. dollar. It rebounded from the $32 level. Last Wednesday, silver broke above the previous trading range and the $30 level.

Recently, silver was gradually declining from the May 20 new medium-term high of $32.75, and on previous week, it approached its June 13 local low of $28.73, before rebounding back above $30.

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