The main categories of global silver investment have increased appreciably this year, led by fresh all-time highs for silver in exchange-traded products (ETPs), where 746 million ounces of silver are currently allocated, global mint bullion coin sales rising by 30 percent year-on-year through July, and strong net-long positioning on COMEX (with net money managed longs up over 60% since the start of this year). The silver price, which began the year at $15.44 per ounce, is up 11 percent as of the end of September, posting a yearly high of $19.30 on September 4, a level not seen since 2016.

The report examines current silver investment trends, as well as highlighting opportunities and identifying potential headwinds for the white metal.
Metals Focus looks at the various influences on the silver price, its correlation to other commodities, macroeconomic variables, and the silver supply and demand balance.
The report also explores the main areas of silver investment demand:
