The Gold Price in Euros remained at about €585, platinum lost $39.50 to $1960, and copper fell nearly 5 cents to about $3.92.
Gold and silver equities traded slightly higher for most of the day and ended with minor gains.
Oil rose to a new record closing high on supply disruptions caused by sabotage in Nigeria and a temporary pipeline shutdown in the United States.
The US Dollar index fell and Treasuries rose in early trade on worries over a recession in the US as Wachovia Bank reported a surprising loss due to troubles in the mortgage industry.
But the Dollar ended marginally higher and bonds fell by the end of trade as Retail Sales came in better than expected and pushed interest rates higher. The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P traded mixed and ended near unchanged.
