Bank Failure Boosts Precious Metals Prices


The bank failures brought concerns about the financial system to the forefront for investors, boosting precious metals prices, with gold rising to its highest level in more than five weeks. The sinking dollar and nervousness in the markets over the largest bank collapse since 2008 make gold and silver more attractive as a hedge against uncertainty.

Diversifying your portfolio by holding assets from different classes and holding different assets within specific classes will help to minimize your risk against unforeseen volatility. 

Silver is a great hedge against inflation and times of economic stability. Because of silver’s versatility when it comes to investing, it can be used for both short-term and long-term investment strategies. 

Generally, silver tends to be more volatile than gold, resulting in comparatively larger moves up and down when market forces are active. On the whole, silver usually follows the movements of gold; however, it will occasionally gain strength on gold due to its numerous industrial uses. More importantly, silver is a much thinner market than gold. So, the same dollar has a bigger impact in the silver market than it does in the gold market.

Therefore, silver follows its leader—gold, but silver will invariably out-pace gold as they both move the same direction—either up or down. 

It's not possible to say for certain what 2023 has in store, but we know the proven power of precious metals as a hedge against inflation and economic volatility will be more necessary now than ever.

Many analysts are speculating that this current bull market for precious metals will show gains that far eclipse the previous bull market highs of $1,923 an ounce for gold and $50 an ounce for silver. Gold set a new all-time high in August 2020, and although it pulled back, it is now gaining strength once more.

However, silver has a longer way to run. In the last market, gold rose 650% from the lows and silver about 1,000%.

For that reason, right now may very well be one of the best times for you to buy gold and silver, with a major opportunity in silver. To help you prepare your portfolio for 2023, we're offering 1 oz. sovereign silver coins at a relatively low premium.
