Daily Silver News: March 25 – Silver Going Sideways

Silver price remains below $25 as markets await more economic data this week.

The silver futures contract lost 0.66% on Friday, March 22, as it extended its Thursday’s intraday retreat from a new local high of 25.98. On Thursday, the market reacted to the

Wednesday’s Fed release and record-breaking rally in gold prices; however, a rally in silver prices was short-lived.

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 trading sideways, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The silver price is 0.1% higher, as it is trading the below $25 level again. What about the other precious metals? Gold is 0.5% higher, platinum is 1.3% higher and palladium is 2.0% higher. So, the main precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.

Today, we will get the New Home Sales data at 10:00 a.m. The markets will be waiting for tomorrow’s CB Consumer Confidence release, among others.
