Silver prices rebounded back above $24.00 an ounce Tuesday, reversing Monday’s drop, as precious metals markets saw renewed strength.
Prices had dipped as low as $23.33 an ounce Monday as the market took a breather after a very strong week of gains. However, Tuesday saw prices once again push higher to test the recent high above $24.00 seen November 17.
The US dollar made losses against other key currencies at the start of this week, which helped propel dollar-denominated gold and silver prices higher. General expectations that central banks will avoid raising interest rates further have also provided recent support for the precious metals, and any avoidance of a recession would provide some confidence in demand for silver from the industrial sectors.
If the bullish momentum continues, the markets will be watching to see if the $24.00 level can hold, while any bearish retracement could offer a test of the November 13th dip to just below $22.00.
