    Silver Price in Chennai

    Silver is among the most popular commodities in India. Silver rates in Chennai, or for that matter other cosmopolitan cities like Mumbai or Delhi, are a reflection of the international silver prices as decided by various market dynamics. Silver as a commodity is traded mainly on the MCX or Multi-Commodity Exchange in India, which is also among the top 3 destinations worldwide for silver trading.

    Chennai is one of the highest consumers of silver in the country. Most of the consumption is in the form of jewelry or silverware. This is a national trend where most of the imported silver is used more for individual consumption rather than industrial usage. Across the world, more than half the total silver consumption is mainly for industrial purposes, as silver is a highly useful metal with a range of properties that make it attractive for large industries such as manufacturing, medicine etc.

    Silver production in India is minimal and most of the internal demand has to be met through imports. For consumers in Chennai, silver has emerged not only as a metal for jewelry and ornamentation, but also as a safe bet for savings in the long and short run.

      The Silver price fell in the market due to a weak global demand and the decline of the Rupee against the United States dollar.

    • Silver prices tumble by Rs.1,400

      Silver prices decreased by Rs.1,400 on 9 September 2019 to hit Rs.48,500 for a kg. Gold prices also hit Rs.39,225 for 10 grams, reducing by Rs.300.

      The main reason for the decrease in prices is a stronger rupee and a low demand. According to Tapan Patel, HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities), 24 karat spot gold prices were trading at Rs.300 lesser due to a strong rupee and a lack of physical demand. He further added that the physical market has not yet seen the gold demand due to the high prices. In the early trade on 9 September 2019, the rupee hit Rs.71.58 against the US dollar, appreciating by 14 paise. Investors have been enthused by rate cut hopes and China’s easing move. In the global market, the trading of gold was flat in New York, at $1,506 for an ounce. Trading of silver also decreased to $18.05 for an ounce. Patel further said that due to many individuals expecting clarity on the progress of trade talks between China and the US and the US Federal rate, trading of gold is expected to be in the corrective phase.

    • Silver rate fall after hitting a new high

      The silver rate has dipped after it hit its recent high following the dip in gold prices. On MCX, there was a decline of 0.4% in the October gold futures to Rs.38,895 per gram which in the previous week touched a new high of Rs.39,340. The weakening rupee and rally in the global prices contributed to the dip in the silver and gold prices. In the global markets, the prices of silver held around 2-year highs on 28 August after breaching the $18 ounce in the session on 27 August. There was a gain of 3.14% in Spot silver to $18.18 an ounce. The plunge in silver prices has been attributed to a catch-up rally after a steep rise in the prices of gold which jumped up by around 20% so far this year. Despite concerns about the global slowdown, the prices of gold are likely to get a boost from buying from central banks.
