Silver Leads Relief Rally, Then Declines

The close

After the close of the US day session, March silver on the COMEX was down $0.56 at $30.44, near the session low. New York spot prices closed at $30.10, with losses of $0.88 for the day.

Standard Bank warned that Friday's US employment report could further weigh on the metals market.

Bears continue to possess the near-term technical advantage as several support levels were breached with the post-rally decline. Solid technical support remains at $29.63, the December low. $31 is a level of first resistance.
