SILVER 1 OZ 999 NY (XAG=X) look forward to the Fed’s expected December rate hike
After a week that saw the price of silver struggle to notch any gains, its most recent trading day made up for its latest challenge.
The Buenos Aires G-20 meetings provided for the spark that silver prices needed to rally.
Washington and Beijing announced a “90-day truce” in their trade war, whereby both sides have promised not to escalate tariffs any further as they work diligently to resolve their disputes.
That clearly took buying pressure away from the dollar, allowing broad-based gains for commodities, with silver being no exception.
The metal jumped nearly 2% on Monday, joining gold, oil, base metals, and general equities.
Silver prices will now look forward to the Fed’s expected December rate hike, which could provide another catalyst for the metal to rally higher.
Before we look at how the FOMC meeting will impact the price of silver, here’s how the metal is moving now…

Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
The projected upper bound is: 15.01.
The projected lower bound is: 14.07.
