Unlike gold prices, silver has not quite formed a new all-time high. However, prices recently rallied and formed a high on December 3, 2023. Silver price action will need to breach either side of the range with strength to establish a clear trend. However, for now, silver prices appear uncertain.

Earlier this month, gold prices sought new all-time highs, with price action trading above $2,100/oz. However, gold prices quickly retraced back down towards $2,000/oz.
