Could These Silver Stocks Perform Well This Month?
The silver stock sector has been quite a stimulating one to watch in recent times. All of the recent momentum for silver stems back to March 2020. This was when silver prices started the biggest rally they had ever seen. Silver was able to reach a new record high per ounce in the market as a result of this. Silver continued this rally throughout 2020, and much of its momentum has carried through 2021.
But that then begs the question, what is impacting silver stocks in March 2021? Well one occurrence that happened about a month ago must be discussed first. Dozens of media outlets reported that Reddit traders were causing silver to increase in market value. This is just about around the time of the GameStop market fiasco. This caused silver stocks to gain a ton of value overnight, which it then lost one day later.
But the metal was actually able to hold on to some of the gains, despite the loss that was also experienced. One effect this had on silver stocks in the long term, is the publicity that the metal gained during this short lived period of time. Many investors who didn’t previously consider silver for their portfolio gave it a chance.
So that brings us to March 2021, where silver is being impacted by the pandemic and industrial demand. Vaccines are causing COVID cases to rapidly decline which hurts the metal. At the same time, as reopening continues in the industrial scene, silver is needed more and more. This is what has held silver prices above $25 per ounce for a while now. Now let’s take a look at four silver stocks that could potentially be positive performers in 2021.
