    2010 Silver Book vs. Ted Butler - Battle of the Titans

    They're not including investment demand. The silver market is so small, maybe $20 billion or so, that large investment demand can easily wipe out supply.

    Current financial conditions indicate investment demand is rising, and will continue with greater acceleration, IMO.

    • I guess that's it. Investment demand is taking up the slack. When it comes down to it, the only driver for the gold price is investor demand, since gold industrial use is tiny. Industrial use of silver is extensive and growing and most industrial use actually uses up the silver since it's not economic to recycle it.
      If silver plays catch up for its underperformance vs. gold over the past 4 years, it will move up a lot.
