What Will Catapult Silver Demand & Price Much Higher Than Gold

While global gold scrap represents 26% of total gold demand, only 13% of total silver demand was recycled last year. Thus, 87% of total world silver demand did not come from recycled silver supply. Investors need to understand that the majority of silver will never come back on the market until we see insanely high prices. There still won’t be enough to meet the silver demand.

What Happens When Big Money Moves Into The Silver Market?

Though the precious metals prices experienced new highs in 2011, it was due to only a small fraction of investor demand. The overwhelming majority of investors were still in playing in the Stock, Bond & Real Estate Markets. When the system finally cracks, BIG MONEY will move into silver that will totally transform the silver market. How high the price of silver goes, will be a sight to see.

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.

Collapse Of The Paper Gold And Silver Market May Be Close At Hand

There is something seriously wrong taking place in the markets today. This is also true in the paper gold and silver markets as well. For a paper precious metals futures market to function properly, there has to be ample supplies of physical gold and silver. However, the ongoing trend of falling precious metal inventories points to big trouble in the paper gold and silver markets.

Comex Registered Silver Inventories Plunge Nearly 10% In One Day

The Comex continues to see a drain of its Registered Silver inventories, while the SHFE inventories are showing a rapid increase. It will be interesting to see what happens at these two exchanges over the next 6 months. If Comex Registered Silver inventories continue to fall, this could spell more trouble for the highly leveraged paper based precious metal markets going forward.

Something Broke In The U.S. Silver Market

After looking over all the figures, it seems as if something broke in the U.S. Silver Market this year. By that, I mean the normal supply and demand forces no longer make sense. I believe this stemmed from the massive amount of physical silver investment demand beginning in June as financial and geopolitical events pushed the retail silver market into severe shortages.

Data Proves The Death Of Paper Gold And Silver

Something interesting happened with the net build of both Gold and Silver ETF’s after 2010. When we study the difference in paper gold and silver buying versus physical bar and coin in the past five years… there’s just no comparison. Investors purchased record physical gold and silver bar and coin while staying away from the paper ETF’s with a ten foot pole.

The Real Reason Behind Gold And Silver Manipulation

Declining energy production including the falling EROI will destroy the valuation of most paper and physical assets. Gold and silver will be two of the safest stores of value to own in the future. I have no idea how high the value of these metals will reach, but they will vastly outperform the majority of most stock, bonds and real estate.

Shocking Chart: The Silver Supply Crunch Continues

While certain analysts stated that the silver supply would indeed fall this year, I don’t believe anyone could have envisioned the kind seen now. With the ongoing surge in physical silver investment demand and the rapidly falling Registered Silver Inventories at the COMEX, any decline in silver supply will only exacerbate the current tightness in the silver market.

Silver Market Breakout: Surging Physical Silver Demand & Falling Inventories

The surge in physical silver demand has put more stress on global silver inventories. The Fed has very little it can do when the broader stock market and economy really starts to crash. The huge surge in retail silver investment demand will not fall off like it did in 2008. Why? Many more investors today realize the situation may get totally out-of-hand.

The Silver Chart The Bankers Are Worried About

There is a rising trend in the silver market that has the bankers worried. This may seem like a play on hype, but I can assure you… the facts are clear. If we look at the data in the silver market, there was a distinct change that took place in 2008. Before I show you the silver chart, let’s look at some of the nonsense taking place in U.S. published financial data.

Major Buyers Continue To Stockpile Silver As U.S. Silver Imports Surge In April

U.S. silver imports surged to 531 metric tons (mt) in April, up from 459 mt in March. Total U.S. silver imports in the first four months of the year are up a stunning 505 metric tons (2,035 mt) compared to the same period last year (1,530 mt). If this trend continues, the U.S. will import over 6,000 mt of silver in 2015.
