In 2020, silver stocks remarkably shot up in price. This was as a result of the pandemic causing the economy to crash. Often in dark economic times, traders will turn to precious metals rather than traditional blue chip stocks. But silver stocks have been sitting at about $25 per ounce for a few weeks now that 2021 has started. This was until the media reported that Reddit stock traders from WallStreetBets were boosting the price of silver stocks.
But Reddit users on this forum believe that this is false, so there is two sides to the story. This occurred right after the WallStreetBets community caused GameStop, AMC, BlackBerry, and other stocks to rise up in price in an attempt to beat short sellers. During this rally, silver touched around $30 per ounce and was at an average of $29 per ounce.
Since then, the price of silver has fallen back down along with the hype. While this is a downward trend from its recent peak, this is still higher than the $25 price point this metal was stuck at for a long time. But is the hype over for silver stocks after this has happened? Well, the hype is not necessarily over. There are still plenty of silver stocks that are increasing in share price at the moment. It is all about knowing the right silver stocks to watch. This often depends on volume, recent news, sector news, and world news.
