Silver Will Become Hot Commodity Amid Market Uncertainty

Silver Will Become Hot Commodity Amid Market Uncertainty

As gold hit a two-year high on the back of the Brexit outcome, there is huge potential for silver as well.

PureFunds ETFs co-founder and CEO Andrew Chanin told CNBC that silver may be the better metal play as uncertainty to drive silver demand.

Chanin said two-thirds of silver produced are coming from industrial demand and noted that silver price is two-thirds off all-time highs.

Precious metals as a whole look cheaper in this scenario, Chanin told CNBC, even as investors look for gold and silver as safe plays in post-Brexit uncertainty.

Silver futures for July delivery gained 0.15 percent to $17.77.
