Silver prices dropped more than 1.2% on Tuesday but held support and closed off the session lows. Prices are forming a bear flag continuation pattern and a break of target support could confirm a tipple top. U.S. Treasury yields moved higher following a stronger than expected housing price index. This rise in housing is a key inflation gauge which the Fed is hoping is transitory.
