Record Breaking Silver Factors In 2015 Make 2016 Promising

There has been a huge increase of U.S. & Indian silver imports & record Official Silver Coin demand in 2015. Global silver mine supply will be lower in 2016 due to the shutting down of several base metal mines. When you add up all factors, I believe 2016 could surprise investors even though we are currently experiencing a short-term bullion bank precious metal price take-down.

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.

Peak Gold and Silver May Have Come and Gone

Newly mined supplies of gold and silver will decline in 2016 and beyond. The main culprit is low prices. In 2015, gold and silver prices spent most of the year trading below miners’ all-in production costs. Primary silver production is already on the decline in the major producing countries. Holders of physical gold and silver would be wise to hang on tight to it & keep a long-term perspective.

Record Silver Coin Demand Signals Financial Trouble Ahead

Official silver coin sales are forecasted to hit a record 130 Moz this year. This huge surge in demand represents a percentage of investors who have decided to exchange increasing worthless paper currency for sound money. Understanding this ongoing silver market trend is important for investors who want to protect their wealth when the next major financial crash occurs.

Acute Silver Coin Shortage as Demand Hits the Roof

The global silver coin market is in the grips of an unprecedented supply squeeze, forcing some mints to ration sales and step up overtime while sending U.S. buyers racing abroad to fulfill a sudden surge in demand. Silver prices have fallen 7% this year, are on track for their third yearly loss and down by 70% from all-time highs of $50 hit in April 2011.

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. The shortage of silver coins is due to continuing robust demand and a lack of supply of silver bullion coins. Silver eagles remain probably one of the best proxies for silver coin demand & also of investment & store of wealth demand for silver.

"Off The Grid" Indicators Suggest US Economy Anything But On Solid Ground

In summary, this turn through our Off the Grid indicators show a U.S. economy that is still only gradually on the mend. Consumers are no longer as afraid of systemic failure of the banking system, hence the decline in gold and silver coin demand. At the same time, food insecurity is still an issue and food inflation is on the rise.
