Metals have benefited from worries sparked by the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union, dubbed Brexit, roiled markets.

Trading has been choppy since futures prices marked their highest close since July 11, 2014, earlier this week. All told, gold futures prices are on track for a 1.1% weekly gain and up about 7% for the second quarter, according to FactSet data. Meanwhile, silver outpaced its sister metal, with September silver SIU6, +4.55% gaining 65 cents, or 3.5%, at $19.28 an ounce early Friday. Thursday’s close at $18.62 marked the highest settlement since mid-September of 2014. Futures prices are on track for an 8.3% weekly gain—the metal’s best since weekly advance in 15 months. Silver roughly 20% during the second quarter and are up nearly 40% so far this year. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gold-silver-futures-soar-as-global-growth-worries-persist-2016-07-01" target="_blank">Silver futures on track for best weekly advance in 15 months</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> MarketWatch </div> </div> </div> <p>"Gold and silver futures soared Friday, marching higher as the dollar softened and investors bought assets perceived as havens to start July.</p><p>Metals have benefited from worries sparked by the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union, dubbed Brexit, roiled markets.
