SLV – A Silver Lining to Inflation

By
A A A

iShares Silver Trust (NYSE: SLV ) - The objective of this exchange-traded fund (ETF) is to reflect the price of silver owned by the trust less the trust's expenses and liabilities. This investment is intended to be a simple, cost-effective substitute to owning physical silver bullion.

The trust has had straight-line appreciation since September 2010, so buyers should use caution at current levels. But if silver bullion continues to rise and inflation rears its head, SLV could see much higher prices.

Buying a half position now and a full position later might prove to be a wise investment.
