Silver has Stormed Ahead This Year, But can it Continue it's Bull Run?

Silver also benefits from an upturn in the industrial cycle. Around three quarters of the world’s silver output is a by-product of mining for other metals, so cuts in capital expenditure or closure of zinc, lead and copper mines over the last two years have effectively driven down the supply of silver as well. Sine demand is high, supply is scarce, we can safely say that silver prices will continue to rise.

Buy Silver, Not Gold, if You are a Big Time Player

On the face of it, it may seem a bit odd. Gold is the traditional store of value. But for long-term investors, it’s important to understand that silver prices have an 84% correlation to gold prices over time. One big thing silver has going for it moving forward is it has growing industrial uses that gold doesn’t have. It could well be the key strategic metal for the 21st century.

August Watchout! Stocks Will Slump While Silver Will Soar

Historically, August has been a rough month for stock investors. The fall in the dollar will reflect in the rise of silver. I believe that silver is on the cusp of a rally. The silver bulls have seen a stupendous run from the lows of around $13.73 during the start of the year to the highs of $21.2 in early July 2016. However, I believe that the bull run in silver will continue after a small consolidation.

Silver is in a Sweet Spot and This Trend can Continue

I think, right now, silver is in this sweet spot and I think this trend can continue. The growth in solar power is helping drive the demand for silver upward & could potentially gobble up to as much as 25% of the global silver market. Investor demand for silver is expected to continue breaking records through the rest of the year. Shrinking supply will also likely put upward pressure on silver prices.

Solar Power Is About To Get Much Cheaper

Solar power is not going away and those who think it is are fooling themselves. The concept of cheap solar panels is particularly attractive when one considers the possibility of combining Solar City’s plant with batteries like that of Tesla or Orison. If Solar City can combine cheap solar panels and installation with reliable and cost effective battery storage, it could be a true game changer.

Silver Is The Most Manipulated Market In History

The anti-gold / silver propaganda is reaching epic levels again. It also happens to coincide with another multiple-day run on the gold in GLD and a record-breaking run up in the paper/gold ratio on the Comex. When history looks back on this period, one of the biggest official frauds will be the Fed’s empty threat of raising interest rates to help keep a lid on the precious metals.

Solar Energy Shines on Silver Demand

With PV installation on the rise, silver demand is ready for a major surge. 80 tons of silver is needed to generate one gigawatt, (1 million kilowatts) of electricity, that powers around 90 typical American homes annually. In 2016, close to a million and a half metric tons of silver are expected to be needed to meet solar demand in US alone.

4 Reasons I Prefer Investing in Silver to Gold

My personal preference is to invest in silver and not gold. Not only does it share similar characteristics to gold, including acting as an inflationary hedge, being a well of value in uncertain times and a safe-haven asset, it possesses four unique characteristics which could propel its price skyward.

Silver Remains in a Tug of War Between Supply and Demand

Silver is not benefiting even though it has so much industrial use as people still call it a precious metal. Until the financial system blows up again, the tug of war between supply and demand in the silver market is likely to restrain silver prices for the immediate future.

China On The Verge Of First Corporate Bond Default Once More

In China, where corporate bankruptcies are taboo, a default would immediately reprice the entire bond market lower and have adverse follow through consequences to all other financial products. And so in the past two months, China was forced to bail out two Trusts with exposure to the coal industry.

A Forecast Of Our Energy Future; Why Common Solutions Don't Work

In order to understand what solutions to our energy predicament will or won’t work, it is necessary to understand the true nature of our energy predicament. Analysts assume that our problem is a slowly developing long-term problem. In fact, it is a problem that is at our door step right now.

Big Trouble: China Might Face Credit Losses Of As Much As $3 Trillion

China’s lending spree has created a debt burden similar in magnitude to the one that pushed Asian nations into crisis in the late 1990s. How much longer can China keep sweeping the hundreds of billions of discharged, bad loans under the carpet and pretend everything is fine.
