The silver market managed a slight range up extension this morning, after initially starting out on a weaker footing. Favorable currency market action, sharply higher US equity market action and an improvement in sentiment toward the situation in Europe clearly gave the bull camp in Silver a distinct edge this morning. It is possible that a bearish silver price outlook from a financial services company was responsible for the initial pressure in silver prices today, but once US equity gains became significant, the bias in silver seemed to shift by 180 degrees.
