Even With Last Week's Raid, Silver Still Leading All Markets Up 21% YTD

Even with silver's 14% smash in the past week beginning with the 225 million ounce paper raid coinciding with Bernanke's Congressional testimony, silver remains the leading asset for 2012, still up a solid 21% year to date, followed by platinum, up 18%.  Gold is up 8.4% YTD.  While the chart shows natural gas as having the worst performance year to date, even natty can't compare to the drubbing the Greek bond has received.
