The silver exchange traded fund (ETF) is going for the gold. The metal is gunning for 11 consecutive gains, according to Trading Markets.

The iShares Silver Trust (SLV) is up a whopping 37.4% year-to-date. While gold is grabbing all the headlines and chatter, SLV is leaps and bounds the best-performing metal-focused ETF so far.

Gold and silver are both popular shelters against the dollar, which has been declining.
