Small cap ASX stocks are gaining for a second day after three straight days of losses last week but the #silversqueeze has yet to materialise.

Silver prices were down 0.3 per cent to US$27.63 an ounce at noon, although that’s still up 5.2 per cent for the month.

Silver Mines (ASX:SVL) was down 21.2 per cent to 28.75c after yesterday’s 49 per cent rally, while Bosnia-focused silver explorer Adriatic Metals (ASX:ADT) had dipped 7.3 per cent to $2.41 following a 19.8 per cent jump on Monday.

Tiny nickel-cobalt explorer GME Resources (ASX:GME), whose stock has surged as high as 13c thanks to it having the same code as Gamestock (NYSE:GME), was down 9.6 per cent to 7.5c.

Overall though the Small Ordinaries is on track for its best day in two weeks, gaining 29.7 points, or 0.96 per cent, to 3,126.2 at noon.

The ASX200 is doing even better, with a 1.14 per cent rise following a solid day on Wall Street. The NASDAQ was up 2.6 per cent overnight and the Dow Jones rose 229 points, or 0.76 per cent.
