Precious Metals Rise in November Start


Precious metals rebounded from their losses on Friday, kicking off their start to the new month on Monday with gains that ranged from 0.5% for silver to 4.6% for platinum.

Gold for December delivery rose $11.90, or 0.7%, to settle at $1,795.80 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

"Inflation continues to worry central bank officials, with lingering supply-chain issues and high energy prices making a protracted rise in consumer prices more likely than previously thought," said Ricardo Evangelista, senior analyst at ActivTrades, in a daily note according to MarketWatch.

Gold futures ranged from a low of $1,780.20 to a high of $1,797.50. They lost 0.7% last week, but still ended 1.5% higher in October.

Silver for December delivery added 12.4 cents to settle at $24.073 an ounce. Silver futures traded between $23.81 and $24.18. They declined 2.1% last week yet marked an 8.6% increase last month.

First they were surging, now they are rising. Shouldn’t it have been the other way around?

By the way, isn’t this picture hot?


As in Red Hot = Not. Those Jimmy Nardello chile peppers are pretty sweet.
