Despite being a short week, it was a hard one for all four of the shown precious metals. As can be seen in the chart, each one showed declines for the week. The hardest hit was silver with the aforementioned 3.6% decline. This was followed by platinum with a 2.9% drop, then palladium which was down 2.5% and finally gold which ended the week with a drop of 1.9%.

Silver had some ups and downs during the week. Monday’s Fix came in at $32.42 which was down just a cent from the previous Friday’s $32.43. Then Tuesday saw a nice increase coming in at $32.97 before Wednesday’s drop to $31.98 leading to the Thursday Fix of $31.27.

Silver is still up a relatively decent 8.7% (or $2.49) from its 2012 low established on January 3rd of $28.78 an ounce. The precious metal is down significantly, however, from its 2012 high established on February 29th of $37.23 an ounce.
