Daily Silver News: June 4 – Silver Price Is Below $30 Again

Silver is selling off towards $30; more economic data in focus.

The silver futures contract gained 1.13% on Monday, June 3, as it fluctuated following its last Thursday and Friday sell-off. On Thursday, silver lost 2.7%, and on Friday, it dipped by another 3.5%, nearing the $30 level.

Recently, it reacted negatively to the stock market’s pullback, along with declining gold prices and strengthening U.S. dollar. On Monday, May 20, silver reached a new long-term high of $32.75, extending advances after breaking above the $30 level.

In early April, silver rallied due to Middle East tensions, reaching a new medium-term local high of $29.91. Then, it sold off towards a local low of $26.25, reached on May 2.

Today, silver is breaking slightly below the $30 level again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
