    Factors Affecting Silver Rates in India

    There are a lot of factors at play that impact silver prices in India. Even though silver rates have shown a steady increase over the last two decades, the historical trends should not be taken as a benchmark when considering future price volatility. Investment in silver as a commodity has gained steam in the country, and investors need to factor in various variables if they are to make decent profits from silver in the short/long run.

    1. Large investors: The silver market is much smaller than the gold market. As such, large investors or traders can potentially influence silver prices. A point in case here is Warren Buffet buying 130 million troy ounces of silver in 1997 at $4.50/ounce, which impacted market prices.
    2. Oil prices: Mining of silver is an energy-intensive process, and so silver prices are correlated with oil prices, the primary energy source in today’s world. Also, imported silver requires a strong logistics platform backed by consistent oil supply. Volatility in oil prices cause dynamic prices of both gold and silver.
    3. Industrial demand: As India moves towards greater industrialization, the need for silver as an industrial commodity has seen a spike in recent times. This is touted to drive silver prices in the near future and beyond.
    4. Import duties: As silver is primarily imported in India, silver rates are directly affected by the import duty applicable on imports. A higher import duty translates to higher silver prices in India.
    5. US Dollar fluctuation: Silver prices are inversely affected by the USD Index. This means that a strengthening USD can decrease silver rates in India, while a weakening Dollar signals increasing silver prices.
    6. Gold prices: In general, silver prices follow the upward/downward trend of gold closely. If there is a spike in demand for gold leading to increase in its price, silver will follow suit. Similarly, any decrease in gold prices will see a greater decrease in silver prices.
    7. Trade deficits: The greater the amount of imported commodities, the more will be a country’s trade deficit. As the trade deficit increases, the government may take step in to take counteractive steps to curb import of commodities, such as it did in the last couple of years to rein in gold imports.
    8. Inflation: As commodities like gold and silver are preferred choices of customers to hedge their funds in times of financial stress owing to inflation, prices of silver tend to increase when inflation is high.
    9. Large Concentrated Short Position:3 or 4 of the largest silver traders currently hold 90% of all short silver contracts. This sort of concentration of a publicly traded commodity in the hands of few can have significant implications on prices of silver in the short and long run.

    Silver Measurements

    Silver is measured in troy weight and grams. Silver may sell in troy ounces, million ounces, grams, kilograms, tonnes, short tonne, metric tonnes, tolas etc.

    Silver fineness is measured as the percentage of silver in the resulting alloy. For instance, a fineness of 900 implies 90% silver in the final product. Fineness is the parts of silver per 1000 parts. Usually copper is added to silver to produce more durable coins. Silver may also be measured in carats similar to how gold is measured.

    Silver Demand in India

    Silver has the dual usefulness of being a precious metal as well as an industrial metal. World over, silver is primarily traded for its industrial implications, however Indian silver imports are largely for jewelry and silverware. India is among the top 5 silver consumers in the world. About 60% of silver consumption in India is from the rural population who view it as a solid savings commodity.

    India does not produce silver in a significant scale and most of the silver has to be imported from outside the country. Moreover, silver demand has been on the rise in major growing economies like India and China during the past few years. Nascent industries such as medicine, manufacturing etc. are picking up demand for silver, and this may soon translate to higher levels of imports.

    • Silver and Gold Rates Drop on Tepid Demand and Sluggish Overseas Offtake

      Weak global trends and declining demand from local jewellers impacted both gold and silver prices in India. The dollar steadied and equity markets recovered ahead of a Federal Reserve meeting later this week, weighing on local gold and silver prices. 

      Silver prices fell by Rs.345 to trade at Rs.38,725 per kg as industrial units reduced offtake, with coin makers also lowering orders. Weekly-based silver delivery fell by a wide margin of Rs.477 to Rs.37,865 per kg. On the international front, silver prices fell by 0.13% to $15.34 per ounce. 

      Global gold prices dropped by 0.31% to trade at $1,299.30 per ounce. 

      On the local market 99.9% purity gold fell by Rs.280 to trade at Rs.32,830 for 10 grams, one of the steepest falls in recent weeks. Gold of 99.5% purity also dropped by Rs.280 to trade at Rs.32,660 for 10 grams as retail demand was also on the decline due to a steady rise in the U.S. dollar rate making the metal more expensive. 

      Sovereign gold remained unchanged, trading at Rs.26,400 per 8-gram piece.

    • Silver Futures Weaken on Profit Booking

      Silver prices dropped on the futures market as investors booked profits despite a form overseas trend. Silver futures fell by Rs.94 to Rs.38,071 per kg on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), clocking a business volume of 19,365 lots. 

      Silver for July 2019 delivery also saw a fall in value, trading Rs.153 lower at Rs.38,575 per kg or almost 0.40% lower for a business turnover of 261 lots. 

      A paucity of fresh bookings and a rise in profit booking by local speculators has impacted the market. Fresh losses in silver prices globally as well as a decline in industrial interest in the metal have also resulted in the recent spate of losses on the futures market. 

      On the international market, silver rose marginally to trade at $15.03 per ounce to record a 0.19% increase.

    • Silver Gains as Gold Dips on Weak Demand

      Silver prices rose on increased industrial offtake, climbing by Rs.50 to trade at Rs.39,580 per kg. Increasing interest from coin makers also helped raise the metal’s value as stagnant dollar growth boosted local offtake. 

      In contrast, there was a slide in gold prices as weak demand from jewellers and investors affected the precious metal’s performance on the commodity markets. Gold prices fell by Rs.100 to settle at Rs.33,150 for 10 grams.  

      Despite overseas demand for bullion remaining constant, the rise in equity-backed investments resulted in a drop in interest in gold’s safe-haven appeal. Rising costs associated with a climb in the U.S. dollar further impacted demand for the yellow metal.

    • Silver Dips Sharply and Gold Static As Dollar Regains Ground

      Both gold and silver prices in India traded flat on weak overseas cues and falling local demand. Silver prices took a sharp downward turn as industrial interest in the metal fell as markets stabilised after the Brexit vote. 

      Ready silver fell by Rs.410 to trade at Rs.39,300 per kg. A recovery in the dollar rate after the decision to delay Brexit calmed investors, who moved away from safe-haven assets such as bullion. 

      Weekly-based silver delivery fell by Rs.107 to trade at Rs.38,661 per kg. Silver coins did not see any change in value, trading at Rs.80,000 for the purchase and Rs.81,000 for the sale of 100 pieces. 

      Gold prices traded almost flat at Rs.33,370 for 10 grams, recording a minor drop of Rs.15 on the bullion market. This followed a bullish run for the metal which saw gold climb by Rs.235 in a single say on sharp upswings in bullion offtake. 

      On the international market, spot gold dropped by 0.4% to trade at $1,303.87 per ounce. U.S. gold futures also slipped by 0.4% to close at $1,304.20 per ounce.

    • Silver Prices Inch Up on Industry Interest

      Silver prices saw a marginal increase in value as coin makers and local industry demand boosted offtake. The industrial metal traded at Rs.41,600 per kg to record a rise of Rs.100 on the spot market. Weekly-based delivery rose by Rs.122 to trade at Rs.40,390 per kg. 

      In contrast silver coins fell to Rs.82,000 for buying and Rs.83,000 for the selling of 100 pieces, recording a drop of Rs.1,000 on poor demand and market cues.  

      Silver demand rose as the dollar fell against the yuan after fresh trade tariffs on Chinese goods were delayed by the U.S. Equity markets were also buoyed by the news as indices across the world recorded marginal increases in stock performance. Asian markets remained weak and industrial offtake from these countries was muted, though analysts predict a rise in silver offtake in the immediate future.

    • Silver Prices Rise on Increased Industrial Offtake, Gold Holds Steady

Silver for weekly-based delivery traded Rs.122 higher to close at Rs.40,390 per kg.

    • Silver Slumps on Muted Demand As Gold Slips on Static Demand

      Silver prices in Delhi fell on muted industrial offtake as overseas cues also pointed to a slowdown in orders. The industrial metal’s price fell by Rs.320 to trade at Rs.41,380 per kg as demand from coin makers also fell. Weekly-based silver also fell as traders reduced orders due to uncertainty, dropping by Rs.322 to trade at Rs.40,323 per kg. 

      The risk of another government shutdown rattled markets but the dollar remained firm, which dissuaded local traders from increasing offtake.  

      Echoing trends seen for silver, demand for gold also dropped marginally. Gold of 99.9% purity dropped by Rs.25 to trade at Rs.34,450 for 10 grams. Sovereign gold remained steady at Rs.26,100 per 8-gram piece.  

      In spite of the dollar strengthening, analysts are confident of bullion making a recovery as global macro numbers drop and traders move to bullion as a hedge.

    • Gold and Silver Continue Rally on Steady Local, Overseas Demand

      Gold prices continued their upward climb as increased jeweller demand and a firm overseas trend bolstered sales. Gold of 99.9% purity rose by Rs.320 to trade at Rs.34,070 for 10 grams on the commodity exchange. In the case of 99.5% purity gold prices rose to Rs.33,920 per 10 grams. 

      Silver rates also received a boost from increased local industrial offtake, with the metal trading at Rs.41,330 per kg to record a Rs.330 rise in price. Silver coins also saw increased demand from traders and rose by Rs.1,000 at Rs.79,000 for buying and Rs.80,000 for the selling of 100 pieces. Weekly-based silver delivery rose by Rs.361 to close at Rs.40,434 per kg on rising futures trades both locally as well as overseas. 

      As criminal proceedings were launched against Huawei in the U.S., investors were wary of equity trades and increased investment in safe-haven assets like bullion. Spot gold rose by a marginal 0.1% to trade at 1,312.51 per ounce. Gold futures performed slightly better, closing 0.2% higher at $1,311.50 per ounce.

    • Silver Imports Rise Sharply on Steady Demand

      Silver imports saw a sharp rise of 30-35% in 2018 on increased demand due to a shortage of the metal during the latter half of the year. Lower international rates for the metal were also a factor as it made silver cheaper for Indian buyers and traders.  

      Estimates pegged increases in silver imports at between 20 to 25%, with the largest rise seen in the last quarter of 2018, when the import bill rose to $1.2 billion. Figures released by Reuters put silver imports at close to 6,942 tonnes in 2018 compared to 5,133 tonnes in 2017.  

      Volatile equities saw more Indian investors flock to silver as a hedge as sales of silver coins and bars rose significantly. The high import cost associated with gold was another factor as many chose to buy silver instead of the yellow metal. Silver jewellery also saw a rise in sales by nearly 20%.

    • Silver Imports Drop on Decline in Rural Demand

      Silver imports dropped by close to 25% in 2018 as a poor monsoon acted as a deterrent for rural demand. The industrial metal saw a drop in the mostly rural states of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan as sporadic rain affected farmers’ fortunes. 

      Silver prices in 2019 have seen a marginal rise, spurred on mostly by a rise in industrial demand. Silver futures rose by 0.13% to trade at Rs.39,621 per kg on 16th January, 2019 as investors raised bets on a firm overseas trend. Asian industrial demand was also on the rise as a thaw in Sino-U.S. trade dispute encouraged increased orders from China. 

      Analysts are predicting a slight rise in silver demand this year, but traders are sceptical of any immediate gains. With the central heartland of the country the main consumer of silver in the country, the industrial metal looks set to remain low for the first quarter of 2019.
