The silver price is up more than 2% in early trading today (Monday) to $15.33, continuing a 2016 rally for the precious metal.
The silver price is now up nearly 10% since the end of January.
Silver prices were aided in the past week by a surprise move from the Bank of Japan, which instituted negative interest rates. Statements about dollar strength by the New York Fed's president last week also boosted the silver price.
