Total Silver Investment May Increase By One Billion Ounces Over the Next Decade

Today in our mail bag was a missive from the Silver Insitute with a link to their 50 page report which may be of interest to you.

Washington, D.C. – October 22, 2014) – Investors are likely to increase their net silver purchases in the years ahead, largely due to an ongoing weak global economy, for capital preservation and silver’s pedigree as a leading industrial metal, according to a report released today by the Silver Institute. The report, entitled “Silver Investment Demand,” suggests that investors may accumulate as much as one billion additional ounces of silver in various investment instruments over the next decade. This is on top of the more than 860 million ounces of silver purchased as an investment since 2006.

Other significant points of the “Silver Investment Demand” report include:

  • Investment demand remains the single most important driver of prices in the silver market;
  • The silver market is the second largest of the precious metals markets, behind only gold in terms of the value of metal flowing through the market on an annual basis;
  • The dollar value of the silver market, which includes trading volumes on the major futures and options exchanges and clearing volumes of the London over the counter market, combined with newly refined silver supply, stood at US$5.1 billion in 2013;
  • At the close of 2013, at least 2.3 billion ounces of silver were held in bars and coins around the world;
  • With silver producer mining costs declining, there are strong reasons to expect mining company equities to rise in the near term.  In the long term, investors are likely to benefit from buying silver mining equities; and
  • The silver market, when compared to the gold market, is a much more volatile market and investors are able to receive a much bigger response in the price of silver than that of gold.

Demand is the biggest driver of prices ,What absolute rubbish , If that was the case prices would be rising not falling . This is all due to the institute`s collaboration with the the CME/ Comex . If they refused to sell their silver at these low prices, manipulated on the exchange, and allowed demand to dictate the price then prices would be much higher . One can only speculate that there is collusion between them and the paper market . First Majestic , who are not part of the Silver Institute , are refusing to sell at these prices and they should do the same . Perhaps management are just speculating in the paper market and have little time for their shareholders .
