Silver Gains Some Ground Despite Strong Dollar

Silver continues its attempts to settle above the resistance at $26.30 while the U.S. dollar is gaining ground against a broad basket of currencies.

The U.S. Dollar Index has managed to get back above 92.40 and is currently trying to settle above 92.50. In case this attempt is successful, the U.S. Dollar Index will move towards the resistance level at 92.80 which will be bearish for silver and gold price today. Strong dollar is bearish for precious metals as it makes them more expensive for buyers who have other currencies.
