Price of Silver in 2021

2021 was an interesting year for silver bullion. As the global economy continued to see high inflation periods in many countries, savvy investors turned to silver as a safe haven investment against the volatility of fiat currencies and stocks.

The start of the Reddit Silver Squeeze phenomenon in Q1 2021

In January 2021, a forum on Reddit called “Wall Street Bets,” a retail investing phenomenon took over the financial news and captured the imaginations of many in the investing public. The momentum of their apparent success was piled on by silver investors who called for a “Silver Squeeze” phenomenon by the end of January 2021. This somewhat decentralized online and real-world movement has continued into the following year, 2022, and will likely stretch onwards through this current decade, the 2020s. It is a general call for average investors to buy physical silver in mass. The initial push of new silver bullion buyers and the overall silver demand in Q1 2021 nearly sold out the entire US wholesale and retail dealers supply.

SD Bullion CEO Gives Silver Squeeze Update on Bloomberg TV

The ongoing Silver Squeeze movement has contributed to continued steady physical silver bullion offtake from both COMEX and London warehouses into Q4 2022, as silver bullion investment demand numbers (driven mainly by western silver bullion buyers) are consistently near or sometimes eclipsing record high sales volumes. 

The silver spot price has consistently since fallen from CFTC Rostin Behnam's infamous silver price TAMP down commentary, alluding to increased COMEX silver futures contract margin requirement hikes implemented at the start of February 2021. Leaving many silver investors and onlookers openly wondering if the CFTC is an impartial referee in commodity market price discovery or simply a tool of the elite financial establishment who typically short commodities for high quarterly profits and bonuses. The lowering silver spot price has continued to drive more ounces purchased, and ongoing demand into 2022 is still insatiable for new silver bullion investment grade coins, bars, and rounds.

How is the Silver Price Formed?

Silver prices fluctuate according to different factors that, in the long run, include supply and demand, inflation, interest rates, and how strong the US Dollar is performing. Because silver is a physical asset that does not tarnish or corrode, many investors see it as a hedge against fiat currencies devaluation and buy silver as a store of wealth. The same goes for other precious metals, for example, gold and platinum. Then, under the right market conditions, they can liquidate their assets for, hopefully, a profit.

In the short term, however, silver prices move according to ongoing transactions in derivatives markets, such as COMEX and NYMEX. The amount of future contracts and silver ETFs are an important factor influencing live prices of silver, or the so-called silver spot price.

Though not directly, mining companies may also play a significant part in the silver daily price. Silver mining tends to have a large overhead cost, so if the silver spot prices drop too low, the mining companies might reduce operations in order to contain losses. With a shorter supply on the market, prices tend to rise again.
