Calling the price of silver a roller coaster would be an understatement.
All you need is to look at a 60-day or 6-month price chart, and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
In fact, even the past week can make seasoned silver investors nauseous. It’s been a bumpy ride, and it’s not over. On June 7, the price of silver was trading as high as $17.60. By last Tuesday, it had fallen all the way to $16.80.
The price of silver today is down another 0.63% to $16.58.
Although silver has lost ground to gold in the last few days, a glance at the price chart shows we may already be at support, bolstering the case for a return to upside price action from here.
A quick comparison of gold and silver in the last five trading days shows their price behavior has been nearly identical, with silver of course amplifying the movements.
