Daily Silver News: November 16 – Silver Price Is Above $23.50

Silver extends its rally as markets await more economic data.

The silver futures contract gained 1.76% on Wednesday, November 15 as it extended its Tuesday’s rally of 3.5%. It retraced almost all of its November declines following the U.S. Consumer Price Index release, weakening U.S. dollar. On Monday it bounced from new local low of $21.92 and yesterday it was at $23.50 again.

Recently silver price followed a sell-off in gold, stronger USD, among other factors. On previous Friday silver price was above the $23 level and it was extending an almost month-long consolidation. On October 4 silver price reached new medium-term low of $20.85 and it was the lowest since early March, and on October 20 it traded as high as $23.9.

Today silver is slightly extending its advance as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
