It’s been an interesting year in the silver market, where demand for physical metal has grown throughout 2022, while the price has spent a lot of time below the $20 mark.

Obviously, the Fed’s rate hikes and quantitative tightening have had a lot to do with that, as we’ve seen almost all of the markets sell off significantly due to this reduction in liquidity.
