Silver was not the only precious metal which realized a weekly gain. In fact, as the chart above shows, all four of the metals listed had sizeable increases. Leading the pack was palladium which jumped 5.5% with its $34.50 an ounce increase. It was followed by silver’s 3.5% jump and then platinum which rose 1.9%. Realizing the smallest percentage bump was gold which rose 1.2%.

This week’s silver improvement was built by four days of increases with only one slight downtrend mid-week. Monday’s Fix was $32.67 an ounce, up from the previous Friday’s $32.27. Tuesday gained even more with its Fix of $33.19 before Wednesday dropped slightly to $33.01. On Thursday the London Fix for Silver rose to $33.29 before Friday’s final jump to $33.41.

Given Friday’s Fix of $33.41, silver is now up $6.74 an ounce from the 2012 low set on July 12th. This marks an increase of 25.3% from that low of $26.67.

Looking at the flip-side, silver is still down from the 2012 high set on February 29th of $37.23 an ounce. Calculating it out shows the precious metal down $3.82 an ounce from that high, or 10.3%.
