Daily Silver News: March 26 – Silver Price Is Still Below $25

Silver is going sideways again, despite advancing gold price.

The silver futures contract gained 0.19% on Monday, March 25, as it fluctuated within a relatively tight trading range following Friday’s decline of 0.7%. On Friday, 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 despite gold prices rally, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
