SHARPS PIXLEY Silver Forecast 2014
High : $25.00 Average : $21.60 Low : $18.20
As the strongest performing asset class over a decade and the worst over the last year, silver is looking very much an investment unsuitable for widows and orphans. Its volatility scares. Investors will however be much encouraged by the way that investment demand within the ETFs have held up so well and this underscores silver's growing use in industrial applications. We expect silver to record a relatively modest 8% gain on the year - that is to say maintaining its double outperformance relative to gold. The key areas to watch in 2014 should be the growth the photovoltaics market and new applications utilising silver's powerful antimicrobial qualities. A strong economic recovery should also boost silver demand within the electronics and brazing sectors.
If our modest forecast is correct, silver will be altogether better behaved in 201 by scoring the lowest price change in over a decade. This will be positive for silver in the long run as industrial users become less fearful of price volatility.
