Silver in the Marketplace Gordon Brent Pierce has observed the incredible consistency and increase in value gold has shown over the last decade. In all this attention on the “yellow metal” another traditionally valuable and increasingly investment-worthy material has been largely under the radar of various investors. Silver, long known as one of the most plentiful and least expensive of the precious metals, has made a recent comeback in price, providing a signal to Gordon Brent Pierce that perhaps it is time to give silver another look as a potential investment.
While silver saw its modern glory days in terms of price during the 1970s, when its prices checked in at well over $50 per ounce with regularity, today’s silver increase may be even more worth watching in light of the global economic picture’s increased volatility. From early 2010 to 2011, silver increased in value by over 100 percent, a staggering rise characterized by both the sagging global economic financial market and increased value of silver in various industrial uses, especially in the area of high technology and related industries. The demand for silver is outpacing the annual production, creating a classic case of increased value for a commodity, and an option investors would be wise to pay careful attention to over the coming weeks and months. Silver has its uses in three primary areas—industrial production, jewelry and silverware, and photography, the last of which has increased dramatically in the age of computing. These three areas make up approximately 95 percent of its general use, but silver has many other advantages which make it a desirable—and necessary—component in the global marketplace. Gordon Brent Pierce knows silver has been viewed as a less expensive alternative to gold in all kinds of capacities, but thinks the recent price increase warrants a closer look at this precious metal as both a commodity and investment. Gordon Brent Pierce observes silver demand being largely the result of the quickly changing and increasingly uncertain economic outlook in various world markets, especially in Europe, Asia and of course, the United States. Nonetheless, the markets have placed trust in the precious metals—including silver—for their security and consistent value despite volatile economic conditions globally. Gordon Brent Pierce also sees the trend for precious metals like silver increasing in value as more than a passing development. The economic signs for recovery have been slow and sluggish in recent years, much less dynamic than many experts originally predicted, and central banks across the world are busy either keeping the rates of borrowing to near or at zero percent while governments contemplate ways to infuse money into their ailing economies. Precious metals are a useful hedge against the inflation many economists and other financial experts worry is imminent in future months, and silver is quickly becoming an investment option not only worth paying close attention to, but one Gordon Brent Pierce thinks could be useful for any shrewd and forward-thinking investor to add to his or her investment portfolio.
