Daily Silver News: October 27 – Silver Price Is Below $23 Again

Silver declines below $23 as markets await more economic data.

The silver futures contract lost 0.43% on Thursday, October 26 as it slightly extended its short-term downtrend or a downward correction following recent advances. Last Friday it broke above a short-term consolidation along the $23 price level, but this week it retraced that advance. On October 4 silver price reached new medium-term low of $20.85 and it was the lowest since early March, and last Friday it traded as high as $23.9.

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