Daily Silver News: June 6 – Silver Price Is Back Above $30

Silver extends its yesterday’s rebound; more economic data in focus.

The silver futures contract gained 1.54% on Wednesday, June 5, as it rebounded after the Tuesday’s sell-off of 3.8% on advancing gold prices, weaker U.S. dollar. On Monday, silver fluctuated following its last Thursday and Friday sell-off, and on Tuesday, it was the lowest since May 15.

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