Silver Futures Contract

Silver futures are a valuable tool for investors looking for a precious metal that serves as an inflation hedge while also possessing many industrial applications. Silver is the most extensively produced precious metal in history and has been mined for six millennia. Historically, it has often served as a currency and thus it shares many of the inflation-hedge and safe haven qualities of gold. However, unlike gold, silver is widely used in industry as manufactures capitalize on its superior electrical conductivity.
