Silver Will Outperform Gold by 400% in 2011 ?

So far silver is outperforming gold by a large margin , Silver has been the best-performing precious metal in 2011 so far  rising up 40 percent since January. The secret is Silver is not just a precious metal it is also an industrial metal , the best conductor of electricity amongst all metals , Industrial companies are buying silver by the tons , today about 40% of silver is used industrially - in solar batteries, water purification systems, computers ,cellphones, circuit boards, plasma TVs and also RFIDs  radio frequency identification devices .By 2015, it's estimated that global industrial demand for silver ,mostly  driven by China and India  will increase by 36%, from 487 million ounces in 2010, to 666 million ounces.  add this to the shortage in supply and you have an idea how high the silver prices will go . Eric Sprott is right in saying " Silver is The Investment of this decade " Eric Sprott runs one of the largest hedge funds in Canada his PSLV (silver) Sprott Physical Silver Trust since it was launched October 29th 2010 it has increased by over 75% in value , IPO at $10/Share now trading at $17/Share .Eric Sprott believes that it is the man in the street who is driving the demand for silver for example the US mint this year has sold as many dollars in silver coins as it has sold in silver coins but the prices are different by 38 to 1 which really means that the common guy is buying Silver the reason silver going up is because of savers Eric says people want to rather own a hard asset than a paper asset there is also the industrial demand and the fear factor related to QE1 , QE2 and a possible QE3 it is not just about the weakness of the dollar , a lot of people are losing confidence in the Euro the Yen and of course the dollar We are still far away from a bubble Eric explains the precious metal ownership is still less than 1 percent so there is no mania going on as of yet , Eric dos not believe that interest rates have anything to do with the silver rally so even if the FED raises its rates it won't affect the rally what's driving it is the lack of faith in the currency , Sprott believes that Silver will dramatically outperform Gold over the next 5 years he calls the next decade the Silver's decade while the last decade was Gold's decade
