  • Silver Prices Move Higher Amid Stock Market Sell-Off, Dovish Fed silver prices

    Silver prices spiked some 2%, or $0.51, to $20.49 an ounce intraday Thursday before closing the session up $0.37 to $20.14 an ounce.

  • Will Silver Prices Keep Falling? silver

    As gold prices plummeted $200 in two days, silver prices fell about 14%, or $4, to below $24 an ounce.

    Our Money Morning resources expert Peter Krauth explained the reasons behind gold's fall, so we went back to him to find out the deal with silver prices. Will silver keep falling? Is it a buy at the lower levels?

    Money Morning Staff: Peter, are silver prices falling because gold fell, or are there other factors at play here?

    Peter Krauth: There are two factors.The first is that silver follows gold rather closely, and usually amplifies its behavior, both up and down. However, it can and does sometimes detach from gold and behave independently, but this is more of a rarity.

    The second is silver's industrial demand.
