March silver ultimately failed to extend Wednesday's upside breakout, as prices fell well below their early highs by the close. Silver appeared to find some benefit from today's US data, as well as from positively received private silver price forecasts for 2012 that indicted expectations for stronger investor demand. As silver prices rose to their highest price levels for two weeks, there was some noted long liquidation as traders headed to the sidelines in front of Friday's US Employment numbers.
