Some Interesting Facts on Silver and Silver Rates in Siliguri

Silver is an industrial metal. It has always been in demand because of its unique features. The need for silver is soaring and prices are fluctuating, and these are some of the reasons behind the fluctuation in the price of silver:

Silver is in limited supply and demands are soaring over time. This fluctuates the price of silver. Also, discoveries of silver use increase the price drastically in the short term.

Silver is majorly used in industries because it is required in machinery. When the market slows down, enterprises struggle and the rate of silver decreases. 

Silver and gold are called safe-haven investments. Silver has retained its value and purchasing power over paper currency. During an economic downturn, its value rises. 

Inflation reduces the value of paper currency, while silver is an excellent hedge against inflation.

When the dollar becomes intense, the silver price becomes weak.

A decline in the interest rate increases people's purchasing power. Thus, demand soars drastically while supply remains constant, and this increases the price of silver.

Government policies strongly influence the price of silver. Any changes in customs duty, export and GST impact the price of silver.
