Do Current Silver Prices Offer a Better Investment Opportunity than Gold Now?

The upside potential for silver prices is undoubtedly greater than that for gold in the next few years. Here are some solid reasons why. And as an investor, or someone just seeking to preserve purchasing power, one doesn’t want to consider what is happening with silver prices right now, but one wants to consider where silver prices will be heading in the future.

Here's what could Amount to be "The Game-Changer" in Silver (and Gold)

If possible lower silver prices don’t result in the liquidation of the new longs, then it is hard for me to see why silver prices would stay depressed & won’t in time race higher. This is an equation where the price could move quite disproportionately to the upside, despite the appearance of a bearish market structure. For that reason, I am further resolved against selling silver at this time.

March 2017 brings a Crucial Inflection Point for Silver Price Rally

Right now, the silver price has arrived at a very important inflection point where two leading trend lines ‘meet’. This is, by far, one of the most important price levels for silver. March 2017 will be a very important month for the silver market. Silver investors should pay close attention to the $18.50 level. If that is broken to the upside, the real test is the $21 level.

Why Buy Silver? Top 10 Reasons To Invest In Silver Bullion

Silver just might be the buying opportunity of the decade. It’s hard to find an asset with a greater distortion between price and fundamentals. Not only is it a good hedge against crisis, the price will be forced up by a perfect storm of fundamental factors. Here are compelling reasons to add physical silver bullion to your portfolio (and only one is because the price will rise).

Disconnected Precious Metals Market - A Ticking Time Bomb

There is plenty of data to support the evidence that the precious metals suffered a serious disconnect from the broader markets in 2012 and continue to be held down like a coiled spring. Even though it is impossible to forecast when the bomb will go off, logic suggests the S&P 500 will head LOWER, while the price of silver (and gold) will head HIGHER.

The 2017 American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins struck at 3 Facilities

U.S. Mint officials said the San Francisco and Philadelphia Mints were (in addition to the West Point Mint) pressed into production of American Eagle silver bullion coins to augment stocking an inventory of the coins before sales began in both January 2016 and 2017. Just how many silver American Eagles were struck at each of the facilities for both years is not being disclosed.

Massive Rises Ahead In Silver Market, But Serious Trouble For Paper Silver Market

The Silver Market will experience a significant trend change in the future due the unraveling of the paper markets. In addition, GFMS and the Silver Institute forecast continued net annual silver deficits for the next several years (at least) as global silver production declines while demand continues to be strong. This will be just more FUEL for the SILVER MARKET FIRE ahead.

Price of Silver and Gold in 2017: Why They Could Bounce Higher

Most of those who are bullish about silver prices in 2017 point to silver’s capacity to decouple from the precious metals markets. Excitement about silver’s industrial demand could be the driver for higher prices in the minds of some. With uncertainty about geopolitical actions & surprises likely on multiple fronts, investors should expect gold prices in 2017 to be more volatile than usual.

Here's why 2017 should make Investors Confident about Gold and Silver?

Any sign that the Fed is going to keep interest rates behind the inflation curve is positive for gold and silver. At the moment, a number of top analysts have several interest rates rises depressing the outlook for gold and silver. But this may either not happen, or inflation could prove more rapid than expected & have the same effect. Here are the fundamentals that should make investors feel confident.

Solar Demand 'Key' in 2017 for Silver Prices

Analysts GFMS – a division of Thomson Reuters, say that the solar energy sector bought 11% more silver last year than 2015, the only major use to grow on their latest estimates for the Washington-based Silver Institute of miners, refiners, retailers & industrial users. But research into substitution continues & “you’re [now] seeing some investment in replacing silver with copper.

2016 American Eagle Gold Bullion sales highest since 2011

The US Mint finished off 2016 American Eagle gold bullion coin sales with its slowest month of the year, but that didn’t prevent the year-end total from being the highest since 2011. The final 2016 tally from the Mint reports sales of 37,701,500 ounces of American Eagle silver bullion coins, which is down sharply from record-setting 2015 sales that finished at an even 47,000,000 ounces.

This Indicator Suggests Silver Prices Could Soar 1,000%

Silver is selling at severe discount. Here’s what investors need to know: the price of silver has an interesting relationship with the S&P 500. The correlation between silver prices & S&P 500 currently stands at -0.90 again. I question whether the price of silver could see another move to the upside, just like it did in 1976 and 1992. It would mean prices going to over $160.00 an ounce of silver.

SILVER - Ridiculously Underpriced, but Most Rewarding Investment Vehicle

A reminder of the factors that lead us to thinking about silver as a safe haven investment to begin with; as a protection against inflation, or an opportunity to make money & ‘profit’ over the short, intermediate, or long term. From whatever angle, just below a surface understanding, lies the recognition that it is nearly impossible to find any other investment vehicle so ridiculously underpriced.

Peak Silver & Continued Supply Deficits Indicate Higher Silver Prices Soon

We estimate that silver mine supply peaked in 2015 and will trend lower in the foreseeable future. Due to the huge increase in Global Silver ETF demand & a large Exchange Inventory build, the silver market will suffer a forecasted 185 Moz annual deficit in 2016. Declining total supply is expected to be a key driver of annual deficits, thereby leading to higher silver prices going forward.

Not Buying Gold Now. Why? Because The Best Returns will be in Silver

Silver is a great place to make money… It will often outperform gold. You can use the gold-to-silver ratio to monitor the relationship between the two. The ratio is trending upward again right now. That’s good news for silver investors. It means silver is getting cheaper relative to gold. If the ratio continues to climb toward 80 again, that would be a solid place to buy.

Global Gold and Silver Produced in 3 Years = Only the Interest on US Debt

The financial disaster taking place at the US costs one heck of a lot of gold and silver. In 2015, the US Federal Government paid $402 billion just to service the interest on its debt. The total value of global gold production in 2015 was $122 billion while that of silver was $14 billion. So the US could purchase 3 times the global gold and silver production in 2015, just by the interest on its debt.

Can the Price of Silver (the Year's Top Performer) Continue to Rally?

With the price of silver up nearly 40% year-to-date, investors are wondering whether it can continue. Experts say it may have more room to run, particularly as global interest rates continue to stay negative. It wouldn’t be inconceivable to see a silver supply shortage if there was heightened demand, & in that case, a silver to gold ratio of 20 to 1 (or lesser) is not an impossibility.

Silver and Gold Prices Supported by Weak Dollar - Rally Stalls Abruptly

A continuation of the defensive dollar tone over the past 24 hours, coupled with downward pressure on bond yields, has continued to provide underlying support to silver and gold prices. Analysts warn that continued upside for gold futures may be limited now that a Dec rate hike is firmly in play. According to Fed Fund futures, traders are pricing in a nearly 60% chance of liftoff by year-end.

Will The Price of Silver Take a Breather Before Another Rally Kicks Off?

The price of silver has emerged as the perfect compensation for those whom the market inflicted losses last year. The price of silver appears set for a correction, which suggests the overbuying activity that took place in June could witness several cash outs in the coming weeks. But the overall direction of commodity prices suggests that this could just be a breather before another rally kicks off.

Price of Silver Set to Skyrocket as it Returns to its Historic Role

In addition to holding up well in the face of bearish factors, the price of silver is set to get a boost from several bullish factors that have not yet been fully priced in by the markets. Despite the recent strong dollar and tough talk from the Fed, the U.S. economy cannot afford a strong dollar. The dollar will again naturally weaken and the dollar price of silver will get a boost.
