The factors that affect silver rates in Chennai

The factors include

  • Demand and Supply: The day-to-day cost of silver prices in Chennai goes by the demand-supply rule. The higher the demand, the higher the cost of silver rates in Chennai. People usually buy silver more during festivals and auspicious occasions.
     
  • Inflation: Inflation is directly proportional to the silver prices in Chennai. Inflation is known as the general rise in prices. During inflation, the purchasing power of the currency will decrease. i.e., the ability of money to buy goods and services will be low. Silver rates in Chennai will see a slight rise in prices during inflation.
     
  • Domestic & International Economic Trends: Silver rates in Chennai depend on domestic and international trends in the economy. When an economy is slow, the residents will hardly find a necessity for investment. Conversely, if the economy is strong, people will buy and invest more in silver. This increases the demand.
     
  • Rate of Gold: If you track the trend in silver, it closely follows the gold rates.
     
  • Government Policies: Government policies will also have a direct and indirect impact on silver rates in Chennai.
     
  • Geo-political Tensions: Geo-political tensions are situations that include war, military activity, climate change, international relations, etc. The silver rate in Chennai may increase accordingly.
    Other factors pertain to fluctuations in the US dollar, oil prices, etc.

Factors You Should Consider Before Buying Silver in Chennai

Whenever you buy silver, it is important to look for some of the following factors to reap the best deal.

Purity and Hallmark: Hallmarked silver is good to buy and invest in. As per the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIs), you should look for four signs that confirm purity. They are

  • The Logo of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
  • The identification mark/number of the Jeweller or the dealer.
  • The fineness or the Purity grade.
  • The identification mark/number of the hallmarking centre.


Buyback Option: A buyback option from a seller will assure you the amount the silver will be taken back by them in the future. However, only a few jewellers and dealers will offer you this buyback option.

Trustworthy Sellers: Of course, this should be the first factor to consider while buying silver. Choose reputed and trustworthy lenders or dealers both online or direct purchase.
