What may have Caused the Flash Crash in Silver Prices

Silver prices have been the subject of significant debate of the past few hours as a result of a flash crash that saw the metal plummet to the $14.27 handle before roaring higher within moments. Of course, this has brought out the usual speculations and accusations about exactly what was driving the movement so we have collected a few honorable mentions that might help to explain the crash.

Will the Dip in Silver Prices Attract Buyers to Silver Eagles Again?

Silver prices started a rapid spike higher in late June, taking it to $20.57 a troy ounce in July. At the same time, sales of silver American Eagles took a tumble. The price of silver bullion has been working its way down in recent days. Lower silver prices are attractive to long-term silver investors. Present silver prices might seem to be a last-chance kind of bargain.

Gold Is Not an Investment—It’s Insurance

It’s an alternate currency that will withstand the inevitable fallout of government excess. It is purchasing-power protection that we may use sooner than we’d like.

Silver Buyers Keep Stacking Despite Falling Prices

Although the silver price weakness has damaged psychology, some interesting trends have emerged which appear to be signalling that the core silver retail & indeed institutional investor remains resilient & is even using the current price weakness as a further buying opportunity. Silver ETFs still remain near an all-time high.
