Morning Silver Market Report 8/31
August 31 2012 10:45 AM EDT
Silver has forged a modest recovery effort to start today. While cheered by the prospect of a Bundesbank leadership change, physical and industrial commodities were probably undermined slightly by the latest round of dismal EU unemployment figures.
