Every Single Move This Year Seems Silver And Gold Friendly - Especially Silver

“It’s very difficult to be bearish on silver and gold — especially silver, which has drawn particular interest from investors this year. With so much pricing momentum, and so many geopolitical and market factors blowing in its sails, there’s no reason to think silver won’t continue to post gains through the end of the year.” Events close-by could easily push the price of silver above $30.

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.

While the Spotlight was focused on Gold, Silver Quietly Outperformed

While investors have primarily focused on gold’s bull run, silver has quietly outperformed the yellow metal. Between Jan. 1 and July 11, the price of silver increased 44.7%, while the price of gold increased 27.7%. The sensitivity of industrial demand to economic factors can make silver more volatile than gold, but recent surge in silver appears to be primarily driven by investors seeking safe haven.

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.

When institutions & hedge funds start to move into silver in a big way, there just won’t be enough silver to go around.

Forget Short-Term Price Swings - Focus on Silver Market Trends & Global Economy

Focus on the continued disintegration of the U.S. and global financial system and economies.

The Silver Market - One Investor Away from Implosion

1.6 million is the base number of investors in the US, who either acquire silver on an ongoing basis or who have acquired a small amount of physical silver in recent years.

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.

Record Silver Coin Demand Signals Financial Trouble Ahead

More Silver Eagles Sold In A Week Than Gold Eagles Over Past Three Years

The EU agreed on a framework yesterday for its first sanctions on Russia since the Cold War.
