Metals rose today with silver outperforming gold for the second day in a row.  For the week, silver jumped nearly 6% while gold fell 0.5%.  Equities plunged Friday in what has been a see-saw ride of volatility, rising sharply one day just to fall the next.  Stocks finished the month mixed with Dow and S&P falling 2% and 1% respectively while the Nasdaq rose 1.4% to finish up for its third consecutive month.
