Elsewhere in metals trading, silver for March delivery on the Comex rose 0.08% to $16.913 a troy ounce. Gold initially gained after Italian voters rejected a referendum on constitutional changes backed by the government, prompting Prime Minister Matteo Renzi to step down and sending the euro to 20month lows.
