Peter Krauth, the editor of Silver Stock Investor, looks at the fundamental and technical perspectives behind recent movements in the price of silver.

Silver just dropped about 10% in three trading days, and some are freaking out.
I say just relax…and buy the dip.
In late November, silver was trading at $22. By January 6th, it reached $27.80, gaining an impressive 26% over just six weeks. Is this silver rally over? Not in my view. Even after dropping to around $25, it’s still up by 14% since then. And it’s more than double its March lows of $12.
I think this was a classic case of buy the rumor, and sell the news. As we crossed from 2020 into 2021, precious metals were assessing and pricing in the outcome of a Biden confirmation and the Senate runoff.
Once those two elements were solidified, silver traders decided to sell.
With that in mind, the question now becomes: what’s next for silver?
