Silver Rate 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.

Silver Soars to 2-Year High
Silver prices soared on Monday reaching a 2-year high. The prices surged on the back of bold bets made by buyers in China in the futures market. Silver rates have been on the rise ever since the Brexit vote. Investors have created an increase in demand betting on the central banks providing more stimulus. Spot silver traded above $21 per ounce rising by about 7% in U.S. trading. Gold rose to $1,350.79, also marking a 2-year high. After the Brexit vote, gold has risen by 6.6% and silver has risen by 18%. Peering into the future, the 2-week high might put the silver prices at a risk of pulling back.
