Massive Silver Shortages As Silver Investment Demand Surges

The U.S. and Canadian Silver Bar and Coin demand hit a record 133.1 Moz in 2015. That being said, they suffered a 85.5 Moz net physical silver investment deficit. Which means, these two countries had to import 85.5 Moz of silver just to supply Silver Bar and Coin demand.

Silver Investment: Switching From A Commodity To High Quality Store Of Value

The collapse in U.S. oil production along with the disintegration in value of most paper assets will cause Silver Investment to be finally based on its high quality store of value properties, not its historic commodity based mechanism.

Silver Investment Demand Will Totally Overwhelm The Market
