The performance of my BlackRock Gold and General fund holdings has been dire. It is down around 10% this week and nearly 40% since it's peaks in September 2011.
The 25% drop over the last year appears almost reasonable next to these two figures!
Over the year:

The share price of silver miner Fresnillo can leap more than 3% at the end of the day as it did on 8 May 2012 and 4 May 2012. I think it happens quite often - although it didn't happen today.
On 4 May it jumped from 1500p to 1546p or 3%.
On 8 May it jumped from 1396 to 1449 or 3.7%.
