Gold and silver -- how are their fundamentals similar, and how are they different?

  1. Where can I find out what the various components that drive gold and silver are? So, for example, a lot of people say to buy gold or silver if there is weakness in the dollar. What other factors are there? When their returns differed a lot, it was because silver had different industrial uses.

    Where can I find a nice breakdown or summary of the factors that affect these two metals? Like an APT / CAPM pricing model for both?
