Investor risk appetite slightly improved as a result of higher margin ratio for gold set by Chicago Mercantile Exchange and recovering global stock markets, and gold and silver prices closed lower on August 11th due to profit-taking. SMM expects gold and silver prices to keep fluctuating at high levels in the short term.
