Weekly Silver UpdateSilver gained for a second straight week as did the remaining precious metals. Silver was hotter than gold and platinum, however, with a 4.7 percent jump in London and 3.6 percent surge in New York.

New York silver futures for September delivery rose 47.7 cents on the week to close Friday at $13.88 an ounce.

London silver edged higher, gaining 62 cents this week to end Friday at $13.78 an ounce. It is now ahead $2.99, or 27.7 percent, this year following the $10.79 closing price on Dec. 31.

"Traders do see possible tests of the $14 level in the cards, but we do not have a polled participant survey result to offer for the white metal. Or, the aforementioned crystal ball, either," wrote Jon Nadler, senior analyst at Kitco Metals Inc.
