Old Yeller closed at $2014.50, off -$77.20 on the week, up 10.80 for December. Silver came in off -$2.61 on the week, closing at 23.29 and back under resistance at $24.00. Silver had backed off quite a bit since trading at $28 in June, but seems to be climbing quite well recently.  I'm still looking for Silver to outperform the other metals.
