Silver Price in Trichy
Silver is both a precious and an industrial metal (silver is as a result more prone to undergo some price fluctuations in the short run compared to gold). Silver rates in Trichy are determined by several dynamic variables in the market. Silver is riskier compared to gold, according to keen market observers. Silver can act as a hedge against inflation when there is lack of confidence in fiat money and residents of Trichy are following the trend.
India is the second largest consumer of silver. Unlike gold which is mostly used for jewelry, silver is used in several industrial sectors in Trichy. Traces of silver are found in most electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets among many others. What’s more, silver forms a major component in the manufacturing of photovoltaic cells largely used in solar panels across the country including Trichy.

Silver as an Investment
When the market is bearish, investors have little confidence in the white metal, which leads to plummeting price. Many keen market analysts believe that silver, by and large, tends to follow the prices of gold. It would be more prudent to buy the white precious metal during times of recession while sell it during a boom, believe experts. Silver can be effectively used as a hedge against inflation in the long term but cannot be used as a hedge against recession in the short term.
Jewelry - Over the past few years, there has been a slight increase in demand for silver jewelry across the country which can be partly attributed to the fact that gold has become out of reach for many consumers across the country. Also, silver jewelry is catching up among youngsters. For instance, a bracelet made of sterling silver is considered to be more desirable (and cheaper) compared to gold.
Coins - Coins can be bought from reputed jewelry stores at current rates in the market. However, decorative coins involve making charges which you won’t be able to recover during resale. Also, storage issues remain if you make a huge investment.
ETFs - Silver exchange traded funds (ETFs) are not currently available in the country. However, investors can trade in silver ETFs available in the US market. Also, investors can buy stocks of reputed silver mining companies regularly listed on the Nasdaq or Dow.
