Among the top precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium, the price of silver today seems to be on a run, as it steadily increasing and it still has a lot of room to go much higher. Silver seems to be the only precious metal that has still not reached its all time high. Back in 1980 the price of silver was just $10 an ounce whereas the price of silver today is just over $26.

If you want to make any investments, there are always a lot of fluctuations in the market value, and silver precious metal is no exception to this rule. But many people are not very comfortable with investing their money in equities or in share markets as these have proved quite risky with a lot of ups and down. For these people, investing in such precious metal like silver and gold would be a very viable option. However, it should be kept in mind that even these investments are not entirely safe as one never knows with the market.

It has been noticed that the price of gold has been continuously on the rise for a few years now but the price of silver too seems to be doing the same, of late. After the economic crash, gold prices first started to zoom as there were many investing in that precious metal and there were few takers for silver precious metal. But when gold started touching $1400, investors seem to be betting on silver and have started putting their money in it.

The price of silver has started to rise to quite an extent after 2010 summer and a lot of investing in this precious metal has hiked it price to $26 an ounce today. With the economic forecast predicting a further extension of the depression, it is likely that investors will keep buying both gold and silver so that silver reaches its all time high quite soon.

The last time that the price of silver went really high was in 1980 when an ounce cost $49.45 but this soon came down. But today, it seems that finally the silver precious metal fast equals the other precious metals and is going to break all old records. But it is still far away from the historical peak it reached before.
