[SYDNEY] Australian stocks closed higher on Monday, aided by gains in precious metals stocks. Silver prices reached a nearly six-month high as private investors pushed their way into the commodity with what appeared to be social media-hyped purchases.

The S&P / ASX 200 index closed 0.8 percent at 6,663, a decline of Up 1.4 percent at the start of the session and had a three-day losing streak.

Silver, traditionally considered a safe haven, rose 7 percent after social media investors flooded the market to get the frenzy back which caused GameStop shares to soar last week.

 » I wouldn’t be surprised if silver is way over by mid-year Would be $ 100, « he added.
