Daily Silver News: March 14 – Silver Price Broke Above $25

Silver rallied over 3%, and today, it’s still stronger than gold.

The silver futures contract gained 3.12% on Wednesday, March 13, as it broke above the recent trading range and the $25 price level. The market caught up with the recent gold’s strength as the yellow metal extended a short-term consolidation.

Last week, silver was relatively weaker than gold, still trading below local highs from mid-December and way below the December 4 local high of over $26.

In the previous week, silver was trading within a short-term consolidation below the $23 level, and a week ago on Friday, it broke above that level. On February 14, it dipped slightly below the January 22 local low of around $22, and it was the lowest since mid-November.

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