The big silver news today (Friday, June 30) is how prices are on track for a 4% gain in the first half of the year despite falling for the second day in a row. We are still bullish on the metal’s price in 2017.
The price of silver is down 0.1% today and trading at $16.63 per ounce, marking the second straight session of losses after yesterday’s 0.8% decline to $16.65. If the metal closes at $16.63, it will post a flat performance for the week. However, silver prices would still cap off the first half of 2017 with a 4% gain.
