Gold and Silver go strong into the weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m really pleased as I’ve watched this week the action in the spot prices of gold and silver this week with that little golden widget on my desktop, ExactPrice.

Looks like gold walked into the weekend at $1,410.00. Silver at $33.36.

Now that’s a good week. I have to say I expected some further attacks on the prices this week during the options expiration but things going on seem to have pushed them to some great highs.

Things like debt, oil, unrest, and a dollar that is gasping for breath.

Here’s the links I will leave you with as we go into the weekend.
