Daily Silver News: June 28 – Silver Price Gets Closer to $30

Silver advances on higher gold, positive stock market; more data in focus.

The silver futures contract was virtually flat on Thursday, June 27, as it continued to fluctuate following its recent declines. On Tuesday, the market broke the recent lows following last Friday’s sell-off of 3.9%, gold’s reversal. Last Friday, the market retraced its Thursday’s rally amid gold weakness, USD strength and the stock market’s uncertainty, getting back within a consolidation. Recently, it was gradually declining from the May 20 new medium-term high of $32.75.

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