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

Silver prices are currently trading close to $26 an ounce. That’s a stunning gain of 79% from a year ago, when the spot price was around $14.50 an ounce.

As the global economy reopens and the green energy and infrastructure spending boom gathers pace – Silver’s bullish trajectory shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

If you want to know where Silver prices are heading next, then just take a look at the bullish trend in Oil prices. This week, Brent Crude prices surged to a six-and-a-half-year high, while WTI Crude Oil hit three-year highs.

Higher Oil prices usually feed into inflation expectations and boost demand for assets with inflation-hedging capabilities, such as the Precious Metals.

Oil’s current inflationary rally provides bullish tailwinds for all Commodities, especially inflation hedges like Silver.

Historical trends from the past two decades show a correlation between higher Oil and Metals prices. In fact there are ten historical instances since 2001 when Oil has ripped higher by more than 50% in 6 months. As a results, Precious Metals have often followed the large rally in Oil with a closely matched increase.

Right now, 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 one to watch in the third quarter of 2021.
