Daily Silver News: March 22 – Silver Extends Pull-Back From $26

Silver price is below $25 again after retracing its post-Fed rally.

The silver futures contract lost 0.39% on Thursday, March 21, as it pulled back after rallying to a new local high of $25.98 following the Wednesday’s Fed release and a record-breaking rally in gold prices.

In the previous 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. 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 slightly extending its pull-back, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
