    Silver demand will fall

    The decline on jewelry and electronics will be temporary. Military spending will unlikely to decline any further. Demand for precious metals will keep rising as dictated by these facts.

    • Something else to note is gold is getting expensive to buy so silver will be in demand more jewelry and coin wise that is!

    • you are refering to future events as facts ?

      My guess is that bling demand (aka jewerly) would decline as price goes up, and would rebound as price decline.

      For electronics, I think demand will be kind of flat as less is used per device (natural progression of technology). And I think recycling of electronic equipement will provide ever increasing amounts (as it should for every metal, because they are all scarce)

      I think PM price, and demand, are all about financial and political uncertainty.

      my thoughts anyway (and I went long some PM this week)
