Daily Silver News: October 30 – Silver Is Above $23 Again

Silver is breaking above its recent trading range as U.S. dollar weakens.

The silver futures contract lost 0.09% on Friday, October 27 as it further extended its fluctautions along the $23 level. Silver went sideways despite a rally in gold price. In the previous week it broke above a short-term consolidation along the $23 price level, but last week it was retracing that advance. 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 breaking above its consolidation on weakening U.S. dollar, among other factors, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):

The silver price is 2.2% higher as it is trading closer to $23.40. What about the other precious metals? Gold is 0.3% higher platinum is 1.9% higher and palladium is 1.3% higher. So the main precious metals’ prices are higher this morning.

Friday’s Core PCE Price Index release has been as expected at +0.3%. Today we won’t get any new important economic data. However, there will be an important Bank of Japan interest rate decision later in the day.
