NEW YORK (
TheStreet) --The markets were mixed Tuesday as gold and silver continued to soar.
Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 6.13, or 0.05%, to 12,393.90. The
S&P 500 slipped 0.96, or 0.07%, to 1,331.91. The
Nasdaq added 2, or 0.07%, to 2,791.19.
Guy Adami said on
CNBC's "Fast Money" show that he was more interested with the rise in silver than in gold. He said he sees silver heading north of $40 in the new few weeks.
Kelly said the demand for gold is being fueled by negative real interest hikes and China's demand for the commodity. He said 55% of the demand in silver is investment-related. He said he would sell

The news on Monday that
Texas Instruments(TXN - Get Report) is buying
National Semiconductor(NSM - Get Report), didn't generate much of a lift to other players in the space, Kelly said.
Adami said he was more impressed with the Nasdaq's decision to reweigh Apple to 12.3% from 20.5%. Finerman said she was selling Google after hearing a report that the Justice Department is mulling the possibility of antitrust lawsuit to stop
