Daily Silver News: October 17 – Silver Fluctuates Following Friday’s Rally

Silver price remains below $23 as markets await more economic data.

The silver futures contract lost 0.57% on Monday, October 16 following its Friday’s rally of 4.3%. On Friday silver rallied due to increasing geopolitcal risks, among other factors. Last week on Monday the market broke above the $22 level and it retraced more of the recent declines after bouncing from $21 price level. On the previous Wednesday silver price reached new medium-term low of $20.85 and it was the lowest since early March. On Friday it came back closer to the $23 level.

Today silver is trading sideways as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
