Daily Silver News: October 13 – Silver Trades Along Recent Highs

Silver price remains above $22 despite strong U.S. dollar.

The silver futures contract lost 0.79% on Thursday, October 12 as it went sideways following its recent rebound. On Monday the market broke above the $22 level. Then it was fluctuating following last week’s rebound and Friday’s rally of 3.4%. Silver retraced more of its recent declines after bouncing from $21 price level. Last week on Wednesday the market reached new medium-term low of $20.85 and it was the lowest since early March.
