Daily Silver News: March 27 – Silver Price Bouncing From New Low

Silver is still weaker than gold, trading below the $25 level.

The silver futures contract lost 1.08% on Tuesday, March 26, as it slightly extended its short-term downtrend despite gold remaining close to the $2,200 level. 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 slightly higher after reaching a new local low, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
