Silver 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) broader market showing significant weakness
Silver markets pulled back a bit during the trading session on Wednesday, as we continue to see the $16 level offer a lot of resistance. It appears that the $16 level is being defended rather heavily, and with so many different people giving testimony in front of Congress during the trading session, the US dollar got a little bit of a boost against some currencies, driving the price of silver lower.
