Daily Silver News: March 5 – Silver Extends Its Advances

Silver price breaks above the $24 level as gold rallies above $2,100.

The silver futures contract gained 2.68% on Monday, March 4, as it extended its Friday’s rally of 2.1% following further advances in gold, caused by economic data and a weaker U.S. dollar. Last week, silver was extending a short-term consolidation below the $23 level, and 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 again, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
