August Watchout! Stocks Will Slump While Silver Will Soar

Historically, August has been a rough month for stock investors. The fall in the dollar will reflect in the rise of silver. I believe that silver is on the cusp of a rally. The silver bulls have seen a stupendous run from the lows of around $13.73 during the start of the year to the highs of $21.2 in early July 2016. However, I believe that the bull run in silver will continue after a small consolidation.

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.

Can Silver keep Soaring on Lack of Market Risk Appetite?

A difference of opinion is emerging in the markets over whether silver can extend its recent strong gains. The price of silver rose more than 6% on Friday and another 4% early Monday to top $21 per ounce for the first time since 2014. The uncertainty in Europe caused by Brexit will continue. Add into the mix fears over Italian banks, & investors will continue to flock to silver & other precious metals.

Silver Prices - The “Five Year Plan” and the Great Leap Forward

Five years ago paper silver contracts on the COMEX hit a multi-decade high over $48 on April 29, 2011. The low occurred at about $13.60 in December of last year, when paper silver prices were down about 70% from their April 2011 high. Silver prices will move upward to $50 and eventually to $100, depending upon the degree of dollar devaluation.

Here’s How $50.00 Silver Prices Could Soon Be In The Rearview Mirror

It’s very evident that demand for silver remains solid. Even if we say industrial production is dismal, investors are making up for it.

This phenomenon could really send silver prices through the roof in a very short period. In the meantime—silver bears beware!

Why Investing In Silver Is Vastly Superior To Investing In Gold Right Now

I am fully convinced that silver represents a historic investment opportunity right now. Let us also keep in mind that unlike gold, silver is constantly being consumed in thousands of different industrial applications. Unlike gold, our stockpiles of silver are disappearing. The wise see silver as ridiculously undervalued & they are stocking up on silver at an unprecedented level.

What’s Ahead for Silver Prices Even as Demand Remains Extreme?

A silver price target of $50.00 an ounce may sound too “out there” when the current price is close to $14.00, but we must remember these three important factors: demand for silver is strong, supply of silver is contracting, and silver is desperately out of favor with investors—the perfect catalyst for higher silver prices.

Silver and the COMEX Inventory - Part 1

During our recent Q & A interview with silver analyst, Ted Butler, the issue of frantic in and out movement of physical silver within the COMEX warehouse system came up more than a few times.

A Stealth Bull Market in Gold and Silver Is Underway

Low prices for gold and silver have absolutely decimated the mining industry. Will Q4 produce more explosive demand figures for gold and silver bullion? It’s possible.

A “Perfect Storm” Is Brewing in the Silver Market

By deciding not to raise rates, the Fed signalled that the U.S. economy still needs extremely cheap credit. Investors who bought silver likely took this as a sign that the U.S. economy isn’t healthy enough to stand on its own, without easy credit. Cheap credit makes it easier for businesses to grow, and that supports industrial demand for silver.

Premiums and Delivery Delays Rise on Silver Coins and Bars

Premiums on silver eagles have been creeping up & wholesale premiums have risen from 14% in May to over 25% this week.

Silver eagles remain probably one of the best proxies for silver coin demand & also of investment & store of wealth demand for silver.

The Coming Market Crash Will Wipe Out Global Silver Supply

US Mint Runs Out Of Silver Coins On Same Day Price Of Silver Plunges To 2015 Lows

The U.S. Mint says 2015 American Eagle Silver Coins sold out & plans to resume sales in two weeks. In other words, no orders until August.

India Is Massively Hoarding Silver: What Do They Know?

I don’t see the prices of silver falling too much from here, but if they do, India’s just going to buy more silver.
