    Silver Rate in West Bengal

    West Bengal has for long been the centre of power and administration in India, acting as the capital of British India before independence. A rich legacy combined with abundant natural resources made West Bengal one of the most prosperous states in the country, with residents known for their acute investment sense. One of the most densely populated places in the world, the state is known to have a soft corner for silver, which is viewed as auspicious, making it an intrinsic part of life here. Being a hub of commerce and trade, certain cities in the state have witnessed huge growth, with silver being the primary mode of making payments in the past. Today, silver prices in West Bengal are dependent on international prices, given the fact that most of the silver used in the state is imported.

    • Silver prices remained unchanged on the following day. However, a gradual increase in the prices were recorded in the next few days with the precious metal closing the week at Rs.39,900 per kg.
    • Prices continued to rise with the US Federal Reserve deciding to slash interest rates, which was speculated to have an adverse effect on the economy. This prompted the investors to turn to bullion as a safe-haven investment channel. With increased demand and depreciation of dollar, silver prices surged to Rs.41,400 per kg on 14 June and 41,500 per kg on 21 June, respectively.
    • Silver closed on a monthly high of Rs.40,800 per kg on 30 June. The steady and gradual rise in prices was primarily due to a looming global economic crisis.

    • A stable U.S. dollar reduced local retail offtake, with coin makers also reducing orders due to high import costs which led to silver rates dropping to Rs.39,500 per kg on 18 May.
    • Prices fluctuated as equity markets remained volatile due to escalating tensions between the U.S. and China, with weak overseas demand for the metal impacting local demand as well. The industrial metal’s price dropped to Rs.39,200 per kg on 22 May.
    • A marginal increase in offtake saw silver rise to Rs.39,500 per kg on 27 May as fears of a global recession bolstered interest in bullion but the metal settled at Rs.39,400 per kg when the month ended on 31 May.

    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.
