Silver Price News: Silver Stuck Between $24 and $25 Hours Ahead of FOMC Meeting

The silver price chart for the past few days reveals a lack of significant movements, with the precious metal fluctuating within the range of $24.5 to $24.8.

Investors are eagerly awaiting the FOMC meeting, where all eyes will be on Jerome Powell’s press conference. While a final rate hike from 5.25% to 5.50% is widely anticipated, market participants are particularly interested in any hints about the future monetary policy over the next few months.

Traditionally, silver should benefit from a weaker US dollar and lower rates. Vice versa, further restrictive decisions could have the opposite effect.

From a technical perspective, silver’s decline found support at the $24.5 level, prompting a rebound to $24.8. 

A clear return above $25 will open the door for another test of the recent high of $25.5, while a surpass of these levels will consolidate the bullish trend of the last few weeks. Conversely, if the Federal Reserve adopts a more hawkish tone than expected, we could see silver falling below $24.5. In this scenario, there should be solid support in the $24.1 – $24.2 region.
