Gold futures rose last week, gaining 0.3%to $1,576.90 a troy ounce at Friday’s close. 

Miners, producers, jewelers and other commercial users were net-short 133,798 contracts, down 3,822 contracts, or 3%, from the previous week. 


Silver, 5 Years – (Bloomberg)

Speculative long silver positions, or bets prices will rise, outnumbered short positions by 18,603 contracts on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange, the CFTC reported. Net-long positions fell by 3,134 contracts, or 14%, from a week earlier. 

Silver futures rose last week, gaining 1.6% to $28.95 a troy ounce at Friday’s close.
