Gold stole the focus recently as investors took shelter under traditional safe-haven investments. Because commodities generally have a low correlation with the equity markets, they act as a hedge against a market downturn. Along with some prominent gold names, top silver stocks have also had a steep rally recently.
Gold prices have been rallying since last December, which drove gold mining companies as well. Silver has also shown a decent uptrend since December. Easing trade relations with China was one of the important factors driving silver prices. Could silver miners see similar movement going forward?
