Silver news: Silver has is rising as investors remain optimistic that the Federal Reserve will not hike interest rates even as the macro conditions improves. Recent data showed that the country’s inflation rose above the Fed’s target of 2.0% while the producer price index rose by more than 6%.
Data also revealed that the country’s home prices surged to the highest level since 2005. However, despite the improved market conditions, the Fed insisted that it will continue supporting the economy through low interest rates and quantitative easing. Also, this is despite the fact that other central banks like the Bank of Canada and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand have started being hawkish. Silver prices are also rising because of the ongoing deliberations on stimulus in the United States.
