Silver is in a Sweet Spot and This Trend can Continue

I think, right now, silver is in this sweet spot and I think this trend can continue. The growth in solar power is helping drive the demand for silver upward & could potentially gobble up to as much as 25% of the global silver market. Investor demand for silver is expected to continue breaking records through the rest of the year. Shrinking supply will also likely put upward pressure on silver prices.

Young Silver Bull Faces Silver Futures Driven Correction

Silver futures speculators have ramped their silver longs to extreme record levels. This has left silver very overbought, at risk of a considerable near-term selloff once something inevitably spooks the hyper-leveraged futures speculators into unwinding their excessive longs. But far from being threats, mid-bull corrections are offer investors the best buying opportunities within ongoing bull markets.

While the Spotlight was focused on Gold, Silver Quietly Outperformed

While investors have primarily focused on gold’s bull run, silver has quietly outperformed the yellow metal. Between Jan. 1 and July 11, the price of silver increased 44.7%, while the price of gold increased 27.7%. The sensitivity of industrial demand to economic factors can make silver more volatile than gold, but recent surge in silver appears to be primarily driven by investors seeking safe haven.

Silver Takes the Gold Prize: Commodities Half Yearly Report 2016

Caused by worries of a summer interest rate hike and uptick in the U.S. dollar, gold and silver both stalled in May but have since rallied on the back of Brexit and with government bond yields in freefall. This has been highly constructive for gold and silver, as yields and precious metals tend to be inversely related. As for silver, some forecasters place it at between $25 and $32 an ounce by year’s end.

India's Booming Silver Market Still Growing: World Silver Survey

Silver bullion trade in 2015 continued to be dominated by flows to India, where total imports reached an all-time high of 256.0 million ounces, rising by 16% from the 2014 level. Physical silver bar investments in India increased by 31% to 82.5 million ounces, the highest since 2008. All this despite a record silver production total in the country of 12.0 million ounces.

Silver Prices to Create a Fundamental Nirvana for the Silver Miners

Silver miners enjoyed a very strong first quarter in fundamental terms. And this explosive silver-mining profits growth is likely only starting. Stable or even-lower costs due to higher gold byproduct credits combined with far-higher selling prices will create a fundamental nirvana for the silver miners. Their stocks still have enormous upside.

Global Silver Supply Deficit Surges On Revised Data

If the cumulative global silver supply deficit since 2004 of one billion ounces wasn’t large enough, a data revision published by the Silver Institute shows the actual figure was much higher. How much higher? A great deal when the additional revised amount would totally wipe out all the silver at the Comex and Shanghai Futures Exchange warehouses.

Young Bull Run In Silver Prices Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

When silver awakens to a new bull market after a long bearish slumber, massive gains are usually unleashed. The tiny advance in silver prices (of over +20%: official new-bull-market metric) so far (faring better than gold) is just the tip of the iceberg. Speculators and investors alike are returning as awareness spreads of how radically undervalued silver is compared to prevailing gold prices.

Silver Investment Demand Will Totally Overwhelm The Market

I have said countless times in articles and interviews that silver investment demand will be the driving force for the silver price in the future, not industrial demand. According to the data by the folks at GFMS, total Silver Bar & Coin demand was a paltry 51.2 Moz in 2007. This surged after the U.S. Investment Banking & Housing Market collapse to 240 Moz in 2015.

Primary Silver Mining Company To Cut Production 25% In 2016

The low price of silver has finally claimed is first victim. Endeavour Silver announced that it will cut silver production of one of their mines by 25% in 2016 & put it on care and maintenance. It will be interesting to see if other primary silver mining companies also announce a cut back in production this year.

Record Silver Coin Demand Signals Financial Trouble Ahead

Official silver coin sales are forecasted to hit a record 130 Moz this year. This huge surge in demand represents a percentage of investors who have decided to exchange increasing worthless paper currency for sound money. Understanding this ongoing silver market trend is important for investors who want to protect their wealth when the next major financial crash occurs.

Do The Silver Market Fundamentals Matter? If Yes - When?

This is the question an increasing number of gold and silver investors are asking themselves. Unfortunately, the fundamentals don’t provide the EXACT TIME when they matter. Yes, it’s true that the propping up of the markets by the Fed and Central Banks has gone on longer than we realized, the unraveling of the World’s Greatest Financial Ponzi Scheme is still on its way.

Gold is Money - But Where Does This Leave Silver?

No doubt the principal focus will always be on gold as the ultimate metallic money, but the temptation to overlook silver’s monetary credentials is a mistake. Arguably, it could even have a greater claim than gold to be the people’s money, because for all of commercial history it has been more widely circulating for that mundane purpose.

Rush to Physical Silver Indicates System is On the Verge of Economic Collapse

Rather than hope for a paper (or digital) promise in the future, buyers would rather have the real thing – Physical Silver, in their hands. When investors are not even willing to wait a few weeks for delivery, it’s a clear sign that investors are nervous about the state of the financial system & that the system is on the verge of economic collapse.

Something Quite Interesting Happened In The Silver Market

There has been a serious change in the silver market. Even though there was a 55.1 Moz build in Global Silver ETF inventories in 2012, the next two years saw very little silver enter into this investment market. But Silver Bar & Coin demand shot up to a record 243.6 Moz in 2013 & 196 Moz in 2014. Investors prefer to purchase physical silver than take their chances playing in the Paper Silver ETF market.

A Case For Much Higher Silver Prices

The reason silver will increase in value in the future has nothing to do with industrial demand, but rather as a result of investors moving out of increasingly worthless paper assets and into physical ones to protect wealth. Silver is just as good as a store of wealth as is gold. Gold and silver are true stores of value, while most paper assets are ILLUSIONS of value.

Banking Cartels’ Real Enemy: Physical Silver Investment Demand

While gold is a main focus of the Central Bank market rigging apparatus, physical silver investment demand is their real enemy. The reason is simple. Central Banks have gold in their vaults to dump on the market (or to lease) to control the price, but they have very little if any silver for this purpose.

Gold to Fuel Silver Upleg

Silver is a fascinating market. Almost without exception, all of silver’s biggest and strongest spikes, uplegs, and bull markets in modern history have been fueled by parallel gold rallies. From an investment perspective, silver is ultimately just a leveraged play on gold. Silver investment demand is almost totally dependent on gold’s fortunes.
