Why Buy Silver Bullion
Traditionally when one mentions investing in precious metals Gold is usually the first thing people think of.
But let’s look at a number of reasons as to why Silver could be a better investment.
1. The Gold/Silver price ratio
The Gold-Silver Ratio (GSR) is calculated by dividing the price of gold by the price of silver. It measures how many silver ounces you can buy with one ounce of gold. The gold vs silver ratio is a very popular tool to compare the performance between gold vs. silver.
3. Increased demand
In China alone the mintage for 1oz Silver Pandas has exploded over 10 fold in just the last two years, Chinese citizens have only recently been given permission to own precious metals so this type of demand did not exist during the last bull market in the 1970’s. Consumption in India too has skyrocketed as the worlds largest private consumer of gold is aggressively turning to silver after the Indian Government moved to limit gold imports. Increasing demand and falling inventories should ultimately lead to one thing, dramatically higher prices.
