Silver futures for July delivery grew by 0.24 percent to $14,812. Experts consider that  trade wars will remain in the center of attention, and will force investors to turn to safe-haven assets, in particular to gold.

July platinum futures advanced 0.29 percent at 15.05 GMT, to $857.35 per ounce. June palladium sank by $5.85 to $1,310.95 per troy ounce. Despite trade tensions between the United States and China, the increase was 0.15 percent, up to $2,723 per pound.

One should mention, that changes in trade between global economies can reduce the demand for industrial metal.
