For the first time in awhile, the gold prices, were on the rise as the US dollar cooled off late in the week.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal  reported the yellow metal’s price surge was its biggest gain in almost three months. That said, as the year comes to a close, gold is poised to close 2016 nine percent higher after posting steady declines for the three previous years, according to Reuters.

As of 12:07 p.m. EST, the yellow metal had gained 1.98 percent over the five day period to reach $1,155.95 per ounce. For comparison, the yellow metal closed 2015 at $1,061.00 per ounce.

Moving into 2017, Peter Fertig, owner of Quantitative Commodity Research, told Reuters there could be some weakness in the gold price as a result of projected interest rates from the Federal Reserve.

“On the other hand, though, uncertainty about political alliances between U.S. President-elect Trump and international players could create some geopolitical fractures, which would be positive for gold,” he said.

Looking over to the silver price, the white metal saw an increase for much of the week, rising to $16.18 per ounce on Thursday. On Friday, the Economic Calendar reported silver prices are on pace for its fourth straight increase with the help of a weaker US dollar.

Over the five-day period, the white metal notched a 1.10 percent gain. As of 12:21 p.m. EST on Friday, the silver price had dropped off slightly to $15.90 per ounce. That said, the white metal has gained 10.59 percent since last December. Looking ahead to the new year, some projections indicate silver could rise 20 percent in 2017.

On the base metals side, the copper price was flat for most of the week at $2.48 per pound, until Thursday when it spiked to $2.49 per pound.

Early Friday, Reuters reported that the red metal is on pace for a 17 percent gain–its first annual increase in four years. As of 12:30 p.m. EST on Friday, the copper price was $2.50 per pound–a 17.96 percent increase from December 2015.

Lastly, spot oil prices were largely on the rise last week, spiking as high as $54.16 per barrel on Thursday. That said, the price cooled off by Friday, dropping to $53.63 per barrel as of 12:40 p.m. EST. Still–the oil price has gained 45.61 percent since December 2015, and is on track to make its biggest yearly gain in seven years,
