Gold and silver are soaring higher this afternoon as the FOMC keeps the Fed funds rate at zero percent. The iShares Silver Trust (NYSE:SLV) is trading higher by $2.58 cents to $46.63. The all time high for SLV was made two days ago at $47.00 a share. That level could get breached today as the U.S. Dollar Index continues to get pummeled.
The SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE:GLD) is trading at a new all time high today. The GLD is trading higher by $2.50 to $148.90 a share. It is still rather amazing that the Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke did not address gold and silver.
