from The Gold Report
By the reckoning of market watchers, the silver bull has arrived. The Gold Report takes a look at what some of the experts predict for the silver price going forward and for companies poised to benefit from the upswing.
Like gold, the price of silver has surged following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, with investors purchasing the “safe haven” metals to protect wealth in the event other markets falter. According to an article published on July 19 on INN Daily, the silver price has gone up more than 43% year-to-date, “leap-frogging ahead of gold post-Brexit.”
Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors, in a July 11 post, notes that silver tops his “Periodic Table of Commodity Returns” for the first half of 2016. “Silver demand had a phenomenal 2015, with retail investment and jewelry fabrication both reaching all-time highs,” Holmes wrote.
