U.S. Silver production at the lowest level in more than 70 years

long and stacked silver bars
From Steve St. Angelo: With the latest release by the USGS, silver production in the U.S. is now the lowest in more than 70 years.  We have to go all the way back until the year after World War II ended to see U.S. silver production less than it was in 2018.  While many reasons can be attributed to the decline, the main factors are falling ore grades and mine economics.

Should you root for lower silver prices?

From Pat Heller: I advocate that the prudent person should allocate a minor percentage of their investment portfolio or net worth to the ownership of bullion-priced physical gold and silver. In my mind, this is buying "wealth insurance."

Why Silver is the precious metal to buy right now (rather than gold)

long and stacked silver bars
From William L. Silber: Fear drives up precious metal prices. Fear of war, defaults, inflation, civil unrest and anything that undermines trust in government. A week after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008, gold and silver jumped by 15%. Three years later, during the height of the European government debt crisis, when the obligations of Italy, Ireland, and Greece resembled junk bonds, silver more than quadrupled in value, while gold increased 250%.

Silver markets continue to show strength

long and stacked silver bars
From Christopher Lewis: Silver markets continue to show signs of strength overall, reaching towards the $15.80 level. I believe that there is a massive barrier at the $16 level, an area that we are trying to get back to. There is a minor resistance between now and then, but we continue to make "higher lows", which of course is a very essence of an uptrend. I believe that silver does lagging gold typically, and it most certainly is right now as gold is breaking above a beginning resistance level at the same time silver is still trying to build up its momentum.

The top silver ETFs to consider investing in now

ETF investing
From Neha Chamaria: A silver ETF, or an exchange-traded fund that tracks a silver index of bullion or equities and trades on a stock exchange, is one of the smartest tools in the hands of an investor seeking exposure to the precious metal. Silver often conjures images of lustrous jewelry or coins, but you may be surprised to know that silver is an indispensable component for several key industries and products, especially electronic devices.

Silver Prices Lower Due to a Higher US Dollar

gold and silver
From Jim Wyckoff: (Kitco News) - Gold and silver prices are moderately lower in early U.S. trading Monday. A higher U.S. dollar index that hit a seven-week high overnight is a bearish "outside market" force working against the precious metals markets to start the trading week. Gains in U.S. and world stock markets Monday is also a bearish element for the safe-haven metals. April gold futures were last down $8.10 an ounce at $1,310.40. March Comex silver was last down $0.089 at $15.72 an ounce.

Silver Price Forecast for February

long and stacked silver bars
From Christopher Lewis:

Silver markets tried to rally a bit during the trading session on Thursday but got rolled over again as we continue to hover around the $15.70 region. This is an area that should begin support, so I think that we could get buyers at this point but the 20 day EMA is starting to roll over a bit. What does this mean? This means that we could very well drift a little bit lower. I think we may need to test the $50.50 level underneath to find more buyers. It's not a huge surprise that we struggled just above the $16 level considering that it is a large, round, psychologically significant figure and an area that where we had seen a lot of action in the past.
