Monday’s silver spot came in at $28.52 an ounce,up from the previous Friday’s $28.24. That daily increase was almost all lost on Tuesday when the Fix came in at $28.25. Wednesday showed a larger drop to $27.68 before Thursday’s increase to $28.10. All of this led to Friday’s aforementioned Fix of $27.38 an ounce. (It should be noted that in the hours after the Fix was announced, silver started showing some aggressive increases.)
