If you have taken a look at the price of silver stocks in the last year, you know how important they are to the mining sector. Silver stocks have experienced something that not many metal assets will hypothetically get to experience ever again. The pandemic caused this massive momentum for all types of mining stocks. Silver was one of the lucky ones, and saw a huge increase in price throughout all of last year.
In fact, silver reached a new all time high in the market in 2020. This momentum already attracted a lot of new traders to the metal that didn’t already have it in their portfolio. That was the case until early February 2021 came around. Media reported that Reddit traders boosted the price of silver, and the metal subsequently reached $30 per ounce. Unfortunately for bullish investors, this momentum only lasted for a day.
Silver was able to hold on to a little bit of the momentum this caused, but not much. But one key thing did happen as a result of these media reports and the sudden surge in price of silver stocks. It brought a lot of attention to the metal. This Reddit craze attracted new investors that had never previously even thought about adding silver to their portfolio. While some may have left after the bearish after effects, some stayed as well. Industrial demand for the metal is also increasing at the moment. So there are many factors that lead some investors to believe that silver has the opportunity to move up in the market. There are plenty of silver stocks increasing in price that show this as well.
