Gold & Silver Prices | Weekly Recap 9-13 January

Gold and silver continued to recover from the downward trend of December and presented strong numbers during the first couple of weeks of 2012. The ECB’s decision to keep the Euro interest rate unchanged may have helped keep the Euro strong during the week and consequently may have contributed to the rally of gold and silver. But by the end of week the announcement of S&P cutting the credit rating of France to AA+ dragged down the Euro along with commodities prices.
