Silver is once again starting to attract a lot of attention on a scale not seen since the global financial crisis in 2008.

Rising inflation expectations and the Fed’s pledge to keep rates lower for longer – combined with the coming green energy and infrastructure spending boom, are some of the many factors that have revived interest in Silver.

Often overlooked in favour of its precious metal cousin Gold – Silver prices have tallied up an impressive gain of over 80% in the last year.

Silver prices are currently trading above $27 an ounce. That’s a whopping 86% rise from a year ago when the spot price was around $14.50 an ounce.

If you want to know where Silver prices are heading next, then just take a look at the impressive gains across the rest of the metals complex from Copper, Iron Ore to Palladium.

This month, Iron Ore broke $200 a ton for the first time ever. Palladium broke above $3,000 to hit a new record high and Copper prices surpass an all-time high.

Silver is still relatively cheap compared with its peers and certainly has a lot of catching up to do. In my opinion, Silver is definitely the best trade right now and the one to watch heading into June.

Trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk and may not be suitable for all investors. The value of your investments and income may go down as well as up. You should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose. Ensure you fully understand the risks and seek independent advice if necessary.
