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).

Best Bets, Concerns & Risks When Trading the Silver Market

Silver is in for a rough few months ahead as the volatility is likely to be fairly severe. I believe that the Silver markets have probably bottomed longer-term, and with this being the case if you have the ability to take a non-leveraged position, perhaps you should. Commodity markets in general should do fairly well, especially commodity currencies.

Industrial Usage, ETP's & Physical Demand will help Silver Prices Take-off

We believe silver prices will be better bid later in 2017. We also base our expectations on solid fundamentals, as mine supply is likely to contract while industrial and jewelry demand should increase. Commerzbank thinks the market will have to see increased investor demand in exchange-traded products and physical demand for jewelry and bullion coins to push prices up.

Reasons for Silver Demand to Explode have never been Stronger

The reasons for silver demand to explode – amidst an environment of verified peak production, and historically low above-ground, available for sale inventories, have never, in my very strong view, been stronger. Which is why, I might add, the opportunity to make a year-end tax swap, at an historically high gold/silver ratio of 69, may make sense to many investors.

Metals Zoom On Projected Massive Infrastructure Spending - How Long Before Silver Takes-Off?

Metals are surging due to projected industrial expansion. To argue that a massive infrastructure spending program will be beneficial for lead, zinc & copper prices, but immaterial for silver prices, is as ridiculous as claiming that overvalued stock prices can continue to surge amidst the “gigantic pink elephant” that is surging global interest rates and plunging worldwide currencies.

India's Shift from Gold to Silver would Result in a Massive Jump in Silver Prices

India has been trying to reduce its demand for imported gold through a number of means & may soon permanently reduce gold imports. A return to silver for consumers in India may be on the cards. Even a small substitution from gold to silver would result in a massive increase in silver prices. A mere 10% reallocation from gold investment to silver in India would nearly double world silver demand.

Silver Bull Alive & Well Despite Recent Correction-Weakened Sentiment

Silver has spent most of the third quarter drifting sideways to lower. This has naturally weighed on sentiment, with investors & speculators alike growing more bearish during recent months. Yet silver remains way undervalued relative to its primary driver gold, so the young silver bull market is far from over. Silver’s upside from here is still massive as it mean reverts higher with gold.

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.

Surging Silver Demand Ensures Higher Prices for Bullion & Mining Shares

In 2015, the global silver deficit — more silver demand than mine supply — was about 130 million ounces, made up by selling stockpiles & inventory. According to Société Générale, silver supply in 2016 is likely to decrease another 9%. As the magnitude of the problem sinks in, I expect that more of the big-money players will rush into silver. And it’ll make for a pricing tsunami.

Money Managers Cut Silver Positions - Will Silver Prices Continue to Outperform in Q3?

In line with our expectations, silver has been the star performer of the metals so far, enjoying a spectacular rally of 21.5% in the second quarter after a gain of 11.3% in the first. Silver also outperformed gold because the gold-silver ratio was historically too high. We expect outperformance in silver prices to continue in the third quarter thanks to a cautious Fed.

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 Experts Predict for the New Silver Bull Market

The silver price has gone up more than 43% year-to-date, “leap-frogging ahead of gold post-Brexit.” Experts believe the silver price will reach between $25 & $32 by year-end. Though optimism is prevalent, investors can expect some volatility. As silver is both “currency & commodity,” used in a variety of industrial & other uses, its value is “more highly correlated with stocks” than that of gold.

Young Silver Bull Faces Silver Futures Driven Correction

Silver futures speculators have ramped their silver longs to extreme record levels. This has left silver very overbought, at risk of a considerable near-term selloff once something inevitably spooks the hyper-leveraged futures speculators into unwinding their excessive longs. But far from being threats, mid-bull corrections are offer investors the best buying opportunities within ongoing bull markets.

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.

Silver Takes the Gold Prize: Commodities Half Yearly Report 2016

Caused by worries of a summer interest rate hike and uptick in the U.S. dollar, gold and silver both stalled in May but have since rallied on the back of Brexit and with government bond yields in freefall. This has been highly constructive for gold and silver, as yields and precious metals tend to be inversely related. As for silver, some forecasters place it at between $25 and $32 an ounce by year’s end.

Why You Need Gold and Silver - The Real Money Like Never Before

Gold and silver is first and foremost money. It has been chosen as money for a lot of reasons and those reasons are still in existence today. We now have, really a competition going around the world to devalue fiat money. You should have gold and silver as a part of your asset allocation because when everything else falls apart, gold and silver typically do very well.

Record Low Silver Inventories may Spark Serious Fireworks in Silver Market

Having hit a new record of 44 owners per ounce – Registered Silver Inventories are at the lowest level in over a decade at 23.3 Moz. Silver Inventories fell as Indians & North Americans were buying record silver bullion. Now the Chinese are not only acquiring a lot of silver for industry, they are now buying silver for investment. We could soon see serious fireworks in the silver market.

Silver Market - Most Suppressed Market Of All To Witness A Historic Shortage

Based on several factors, it is eminently possible that we are on the cusp of ignition, of the biggest bull market in financial market history; which in my view, will be focused on “anti-fiat monies” like gold and silver. But nowhere is shortage more likely to occur than in the most suppressed market of all, Silver, where inevitably, the breakout above $50/oz, will commence a new phase in history.

COMEX Registered Silver Inventories at Lowest in Over 15 Years

In just three days, the total Registered silver inventories at the COMEX fell from almost 30 Moz down to 23.1 Moz. Thus, COMEX Registered silver inventories are the lowest they have been in more than 15 years. What is interesting this time around is that the Registered silver inventories declined from a peak of 70 Moz in the beginning of 2015 to 23 Moz currently on very low silver prices.

American Gold Eagle - Gold Coin Sales Soar Over 200%

Gold futures ended May with the biggest monthly decline since November but physical gold demand saw a significant increase from last year. Sales data compiled by the U.S. Mint shows that a total of 95,000 ounces of gold were sold in May, up more than 206% from 31,000 ounces sold in May 2015. Looking at the physical markets you can see signs of long-term strength.
