Metals Prices Head Lower
Even platinum growth slows in the second quarter
Gold prices hovered around $280 per ounce in the second quarter, but demand for gold jewelry rose (see story at left).
The ascent of platinum prices cooled over the summer, averaging $570 per ounce. Prices are expected to pick up again this fall.
Silver prices fell to the lowest levels of the year during the second quarter and remained well under last years levels. Look for bargains for Christmas.
