2 weeks ago

Silver prices rose in European trade after a short hiatus from gains yesterday off five-week highs, with  the dollar currently declining against major rivals.


The white metal is heading for the largest weekly profit in 2023 on strong demand for safe havens amid growing concerns about the global banking sector following the collapse of several local US banks and the crisis with the Credit Suisse bank in Europe.
