Daily Silver News: November 2 – Silver Price Bouncing Back
Silver price is above $23 level again as USD weakens, stock prices advance.
The silver futures contract lost 0.71% on Wednesday, November 1 as it extended its Tuesday’s decline of 1.9% on strengthening U.S. dollar, interest rate uncertainty. It was as low as $22.65 before bouncing after the FOMC release. 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.
Today silver is trading much higher as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
The silver price is 1.7% higher as it is above $23 level again. What about the other precious metals? Gold is 0.5% higher platinum is 0.8% lower and palladium is 0.3% lower. So the main precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.
Yesterday’s ADP Non-Farm Employment Change release has been lower than expected at +113,000. The Fed has left interest rates unchanged which led to weaker U.S. dollar and rally on the stock market. Today we will get the Unemployment Claims release at 8:30 a.m., among others.
