Dealing Manager at the online bullion dealer, Kelly-Ann Kearsey said, 'The last seven days have seen net selling of gold and net buying of silver, continuing the trends that we saw last week.
Overall, we have seen buying and selling equaling each other out, and the long-term trend of selling out of the UK and Switzerland vaults whilst more purchasing in Singapore and Canada can be seen.
'Our volumes are up from last week, and silver has been the favourite over gold.'
Over the past seven days the pointers indicate more positive news across the Atlantic, with a strong dollar prevailing against other major currencies and strong indications from US manufacturing figures.
Last week's Swiss referendum ended with a vote against adding to the country's gold reserves, but the result had been forecast in pre-polling, and there was no major impact from the vote.
Over the next seven days we will be looking forward to the Consumer Price Index figures from China and also the US Retail sales which may give further indication to the strength of the US economy.'
16:00 04/12/14: Week on week performance: Gold rose 1.5% to $1,209.01; Silver gained 2% to $16.55; Platinum added 2.0% to $1,241.00 while Palladium dropped 0.3% to $802.53.
