Daily Silver News: October 31 – Silver Price Trading Sideways

Silver trades along $23.40 after yesterday’s rally; tomorrow’s FOMC in focus.

The silver futures contract gained 2.22% on Monday, October 30 as it retraced its recent declines and a short-term downward correction following another rally in gold, among other factors. 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. Yesterday it came back closer to that local high.

Today silver is trading along its yesterday’s closing price as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
