Daily Silver News: November 1 – Silver Price Below $23 Again

Silver retraced its recent advances; FOMC announcement in focus.

The silver futures contract lost 1.90% on Tuesday, October 31 as it retraced its Monday’s rally of 2.2% following strengthening U.S. dollar, among other factors. It came back slightly below the $23 level yesterday. On October 4 silver price reached new medium-term low of $20.85 and it was the lowest since early March, and on Friday, October 20 it traded as high as $23.9.
