Silver Trading | Will price pause or extend after Fed Chair’s Speech?

Silver Trading | Will price pause or extend after Fed Chair's Speech?

Silver prices advanced nearly three week high in latest silver trading rounds. The white metals sparked over five percent since hitting a seven-month low at the start of the month. A risk of escalation in the Middle East military conflict drove investors toward safe assets.

The recent surge in silver prices was due to the intensifying conflict between Israel and Hamas, which bolstered bullions attractiveness as a safe haven asset. However, the rise was tempered by soaring U.S Treasury yields and the dollar’s recovery, both driven by expectations of higher interest rates.

A blast at a Gaza hospital, which reportedly killed hundreds of Palestinians, marked a potential escalation in the conflict, especially as Egyptian and Palestinian leaders called off a summit with U.S. President Joe Biden following the attack.

The move pushed up concerns that the Israel-Hamas conflict could draw in other Arab countries, causing the war to spill over into the broader Middle East region.

Later today, Federal Reserve Chair Powell’s speech is due with an anticipation that the U.S. central bank will keep rates higher for longer. This sentiment might hold bullish trend in dollar against the major counterparts, which may restrict metals prices gains or a vice versa as per the latest report coming from silver trading.
