Default Silver Price Prediction 2012

This article cites low interest rates and inflation through 2014 as having a negative impact on silver. I disagree that this one factor could keep silver down.

I've read some predictions that silver may perform wildly this year in a good way and some predictions of it hitting $18.

I'm not sure what to believe but think silver is volatile but the long-term trend looks good. Speaking of that some banks have been accused of trying to suppress the silver price.

I find it interesting that 50% of silver's demand is from industrial usage and manufacturing.

It also makes mention that some people accuse big banks like JP Morgan of manipulating the price of silver.

Some market watchers believe there has been manipulation by banks with huge short positions, such as J.P. Morgan. Some, like Eric Sprott, suggest that the CME Group's odd behavior, such as raising margins two days after the silver price had just dropped by 22%, is holding down the price to help the commercial shorts. Regardless of whether you believe these "conspiracy" theories, in the long run, it does not matter. The important thing to realize is that the silver derivatives market, like all derivatives markets, is based on leverage, confidence and promises.
