The spot silver price is up today (Friday), as precious metals traders await Italy’s referendum on Sunday, or ‘Quitaly.’ Uncertainty and fears of the outcome have investors around the world heading into safe-haven investments.

Shortly before noon today (Friday), the spot silver price was up $0.23, or 1.37%, at $16.81 an ounce.
But Italy’s vote this weekend isn’t the only thing moving silver prices today. Precious metal investors are also reacting to the November jobs report.
