iNVEZZ.com reported that silver rallied on Monday after last week’s poor performance. The white metal was battered by the US dollar’s strength, but investors are now preparing for a two-day US Federal Reserve meeting, scheduled to start Tuesday.

As quoted in the market news:

Silver for May delivery, the most traded contract on the COMEX, had added 24.1 cents, or 1.56 percent to $15.735 per troy ounce as of 8:27 GMT today, having ranged from $15.505 to $15.755. Last week the precious metal lost about two percent, reaching the lowest price in more than three months at $15.260 on Wednesday. Weak retail data had given haven investments a brief respite on Thursday, only for the dollar to come back, rallying to a 12-year peak against a basket of six other major currencies on Friday.

All eyes are now on the upcoming two-day FOMC meeting, starting tomorrow, as analysts expect the US monetary policy body to voice a more hawkish stance on Wednesday. More precisely, experts suggest the FOMC will change the wording of its statement to drop the word ‘patient’, and hint towards a mid-2015 rate hike – the first in more than a decade.
