Silver prices today are boosted by their various usages and associated demand. Besides the regular use of silver as a precious metal in jewelry or for other decorative purposes, silver has also been applied in the medical industry for eons due to its antibacterial properties. Since silver is ductile, malleable, and possesses a high thermal and electrical conductivity, it has proven to be ideal for numerous industrial uses.

What is silver spot price? Why should I care about it?

The most widely accepted silver spot price on the live market is by the troy ounce, which is updated every few seconds with immediate delivery. The spot price is not the same as the silver bullion prices, because distribution, manufacturing, and dealing costs are not included in it. Thus, the price of silver coins or bullion is higher than its spot price due to the minor aforementioned extra costs.

Silver Bullion Bars and Coins are widely viewed as major forms of investment in precious metals. The price of silver coins and bullion bars is widely quoted, and as long as you are comfortable with securely storing them, it can prove to be an excellent investment. Make sure to buy silver bullion only from approved refiners like Australia’s Perth Mint, Engelhard Silver, PAMP Suisse, and the U.S. Mint to name a few.

You can also invest in available silver futures contracts, silver certificates, mutual funds, and mining stocks, but these do not allow physical access to silver. Therefore, many investors avoid them and prefer to invest only in the physical form of silver.

Are silver prices the same no matter where I live?

To avoid a profitable arbitrage opportunity, the price of silver at any particular time doesn’t change across the globe. So, at any given time, the price of silver in the United States is the same as the price of silver in India, China, Australia, U.K., or any other country in the world.

What is the gold/silver ratio?

To analyze if the price of gold or silver is excessive or hiked in a certain moment, their historical prices are constantly compared. Thus, the Gold/Silver ratio can be defined as the number of ounces of silver needed to buy one ounce of gold. This ratio has recently been above 60 because gold is far more expensive than silver. The purpose of the Gold/Silver ratio is to help investors pick the right time to enter or exit the silver market.

What are bid and ask prices?

The Ask Price is the lowest price at which a seller is offering to sell silver. The highest price at which a buyer is willing to pay for silver is called Bid Price. The difference between the Ask price and Bid price is defined as the Spread.

Why can't I buy at the silver spot price?

The silver spot price is quoted as the price of 1 troy ounce of silver which is being delivered right now but in raw form. The troy ounce silver price takes into account a nominal dealer fee and the fabrication and distribution costs in addition to the silver spot price. A collector’s value is added to the price paid by the buyer in case of rare, uncommon, and otherwise valuable items. As a result, you cannot buy silver directly at spot price.

What is the difference between an ounce and a troy ounce when looking at the silver price chart?

According to medieval French standards and adopted by the United States in the 19th century, precious metals such as silver are not measured by the ounce, which is approximately 28.349 grams, but by the troy ounce which is equivalent to about 31.103 grams.
