As US manufacturing and personal spending data are below market expectations, the market is worrying that the US economy might experience a second recession, and higher possibility is expected for a third round of quantitative easing (QE3) by FED. As a result, gold and silver prices rose again with gold prices hitting a historical high. SMM expects gold and silver prices will keep rising in the short term due to strong risk aversion sentiment.
