Most of you may or may not know, the prices of Metals is on the rise.

Mid November this year, Silver was sitting roughly £0.51 per gram (spot price) and now it's over £0.63 per gram, that's a rise of over 20% in less than 1 and a half months.

Would it be a wise decision to invest in Silver?

It's not a stock market price....the price quoted is a spot price and is on the futures market. to buy the price hoping for a rise you need to take out a futures contract ether through a broker or use a spread betting company like IG or financial spreads....you can buy varying contract lengths which will expire when they reach the forecasted date or you can roll them over into the new contract period....the longer running dates have a larger spread.

WOOOOOOOSH
I never mentioned the direction of the price movement as you can forcast/bet on a rise or a fall in the spot price.

You really do need to think before you type.

The rise is due to governments selling off their reserves which forced the price down, the silver they sold off has been used up by industrial buyers and the current shortage of supply is pushing the price back up.

Also people always need to find an investment trend....property is stagnant and for obvious reasons will remain so for some time....the stock markets around the world are nearing previous highs so natural commodities becomes a good investment as it is a tangible asset.

If the banks crash again can government's afford to bail them out again...if the answer is now some people could loose their savings and pension funds over night....if you have a gold stash then you have something you can sell for cash which is another reason for the rise in metal prices.

The market is set to see a surplus of 64.4 million ounces in 2010, says Barclays Capital, which could curb prices. This year's surplus will be 16% smaller than 2009's but much higher than previous years."



Gmfs mentioned in your article published a similar report in october which got ripped to shreds by the investment comunity...so for some unexplained reason they have increased the surplus estamate 5 fold in the last 2 months which looses them quite a lot of credability to be so wrong the last time. even there new estamate is peanuts considering chinas is cutting export by a futher 1400 - 2500 tones next year = no surplus

Have a read of this before you go quoting what the bankers have to say about the Silver market...

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold (and Silver):

A Chicago law firm yesterday announced another class-action lawsuit against J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and HSBC Holdings PLC complaining of silver market manipulation. Interestingly, the lawsuit cites GATA's silver market manipulation whistleblower Andrew Maguire and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission member Bart Chilton, and specifies mechanisms by which Morgan and HSBC could manipulate the silver market through the use of silver exchange-traded funds.

The lawsuit complains:

"Before the Class Period began, JPMorgan had become the custodian and an authorized participant of the largest known concentration of silver bars, the iShares Silver ETF, which holds in excess of 340 million troy ounces of silver, a sum that equals an estimated 1/3 of the total present global supply of silver bullion. As a result, it had actual knowledge of the precise whereabouts of much of the world's known silver bar supply.
