Silver futures rose to above $22.6 per ounce at the start of December, hovering at levels not seen since May amid expectations for a slowdown in monetary tightening by the Federal Reserve. Fed Chairman Powell stated that it is likely that the US central bank will slow the aggressiveness of rate hikes this month, easing demand for the dollar and driving investors toward bullion. Besides bullion, softer rate hikes in the US and a cut in the reserve ratio by the PBoC supported expectations of higher demand for industrial silver usage as electricity conductors, tracking the rebound for copper. Signs of low supply also supported prices, as New York’s COMEX inventories fell 70% in the last 18 months to just over 1 million tonnes. Also, the London Bullion Market Association stockpiles fell for the 10th straight month to a record-low 27.1 thousand tonnes in November.

Historically, Silver reached an all time high of 49.51 in April of 2011. Silver - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on December of 2022.

Silver is expected to trade at 23.68 USD/t. oz by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 25.37 in 12 months time.
