These Silver Stocks Have Experienced Positive Momentum
When it comes to silver stocks, things have been very interesting to watch in the market. Last year nobody knew what was to come for this resource. That was until the pandemic arrived, and made things even more unsure in March 2020. But now it’s the end of February in 2021, nearly a year later, so where do things stand?
Well, one thing that recently happened with silver stocks was when Reddit traders allegedly boosted the metal. This caused the price of silver to go above $30 a share on average. But Reddit traders denied that this was their doing, and blamed hedge funds. It is truly unknown what really caused this silver uptick. But the metal was able to hold at least $2 of gains long term after this.
You may be wondering, what else causes silver stocks to move up in the market? One factor in the price of silver is industrial demand for the metal. Industrial demand for the metal fell after many operations had to temporarily shut down due to the pandemic. But still silver prices were able to move higher because of the rising value of precious metals as a whole.
At one point in 2020, the metal reached a new all-time high in the market. Some may think that the hype for silver is over since it has received many upticks. But this is not true, as there is many silver stocks that have been trending upwards in the market. It can get confusing when trying to decide which silver stocks are the best to watch. For now, let’s take a look at four silver stocks that have positive momentum so far, and could potentially uptick in the future.
