Silver has been in a major uptrend registering new highs from past 6 weeks after hitting a low of $15.675. Since then it has gained $1.804 incrementally over the weeks showing more solidarity over gold which is more volatile. Both the precious metals have been on a tear over safe haven buying broadly due to worries over U.S policies, global uncertainties and a weakening dollar, though gold had posted a negative weekly return in the same period where as silver was in a clear uptrend mounting week on week gains.
Demand for silver is also higher than gold because of its industrial usage.
