1.24.23 - Silver: A Bigger Upside than Gold?
Gold last traded at $1,935 an ounce. Silver at $23.65 an ounce.
-CNBC--Prices of silver could hit a nine-year high of $30 per ounce this year - possibly outpacing gold prices.
The last time spot silver touched $30 levels per ounce was in February 2013, according to closing price data from Refinitiv.
Insufficient supplies of silver as well as its tendency to be a better performer than gold in periods of high inflation are key drivers supporting the outlook, analysts told CNBC.
"Silver has historically delivered gains of close to 20% per annum in years inflation is high. Given that track record, and how cheap silver remains relative to gold, it wouldn't surprise to see silver head towards $30 per ounce this year, though that will likely offer significant resistance," said Janie Simpson, managing director at ABC Bullion.
Spot silver prices notched a record high of $49.45 in 1980 against the backdrop of a 13.5% inflation rate, up from around $4 in 1976, when the rate of inflation was cooler at 5.7%.
The precious metal last traded $24.02 per ounce, against the backdrop of an inflation rate of 6.5%.
