Expert's Views On Silver
Why Invest in Silver Now?
The fundamentals of the Silver Market suggest, at current prices, that investing in silver could offer investors one of the single best long-term investments today. It is no secret that both gold and silver are recognized as a store of value. What is not so well known is that the price of silver has in the past outperformed that of gold. Hear from industry experts as they discuss their views on why investing in silver has been and will remain a popular option with today’s investors.
Between January 2, 2009 and December 31, 2012, the price of gold increased over 90%, while the price of silver increased over 160%. In addition, there is a compelling argument for silver investing now because the economic and monetary fundamentals today appear to be more bullish than the conditions of the late 1970s when the silver price exceeded $50 per ounce. Yet today's current market prices are a mere fraction of levels projected by various silver industry experts for the future.
Worldwide market demand for silver is growing, while supplies of silver are diminishing. New high-tech uses for silver will further strain already-tight supplies in the future. World demand for silver now exceeds annual production and has every year since 1990, depleting above-ground stockpiles of silver. The U.S. government, once the largest stock-piler of silver on the planet, dumped billions and billions of ounces of silver onto the world market over the years, resulting in depressed silver prices. Today, that government silver hoard is gone, and now the U.S. government is a buyer of silver at prevailing world silver prices.
For these reasons and many more, the silver market is considered by many to offer an outstanding investing opportunity. Today, a growing number of investment analysts, financial advisors and commentators are sharing their expert views on silver, its portfolio diversification benefits and potential for profit.
