In addition to that, the OPEC meet and the increasing worries about the global economy being stranded and struggling to get back to normality at a very slow pace after the coronavirus crisis aftermath have also been responsible for the fluctuations in the price of the precious metal. The appeal of precious metals increased as a haven investment with the increase in volatility around the economy and equities which helped to keep prices steady for some time.
    • By the third week of the month of April, the prices kept going up and down, with the highest price point for the month of April being recorded at the rate of Rs.42,710 per kg on 21 April. The rise was driven by fears of a global recession continuing while the American President Donald Trump’s announcement of the economy reopening helped to drive prices down.
    • By the time the end of the month was nearing, the prices of oil had also slumped drastically. This led to further volatility in equities which, in turn, also led to a consistency of prices of the precious metals. More and more investors looked to it as a safer option thereafter.

    Silver as an investment

    Investing in silver is a safe and smart move, with the metal in high demand across the globe. The versatility mixed with utility make silver ideal for multiple industries, ensuring that owners can get quick cash for their silver during emergencies, making it extremely liquid. Limited availability combined with the demand could see the price of silver going up in the coming years, offering high appreciation on investment. Two of the most popular means of investing in silver in West Bengal are through silver contracts/futures or by purchasing silver in its physical form.

    Silver contracts – The growing Indian market has enabled people to trade in silver, with silver contracts and futures providing an excellent opportunity to make profits. One can participate in silver trade through the Multi Commodity Exchange, the National Multi Commodity Exchange and the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange. Understanding how the markets function could go a long way in enhancing your investment, provided one plays it safe and stays abreast of current trends.

    Physical silver – Purchasing silver in the form of coins, bars or jewellery continues to be the most preferred form of investing in this metal. The markets are generally out of bound for most people in West Bengal, which mean that jewellers and banks are their mainstay when it comes to buying it. Silver jewellery is traditionally passed on as family heirlooms and is integral to most celebrations and festivals in the state. While it doesn’t make sense to purchase jewellery if the intention is to use it only as an investment, it does serve dual roles. Coins and bars, on the other hand, are purchased purely as an investment, as these can be sold readily and there are no wastage or making charges associated with them.
