Buying silver

If in the UK you can buy physical silver (coins or bars) from the royal mint or royal mint authorised dealers. Just search the internet. You probably want to buy whatever is captial gains tax exempt (I think silver britannias are). Shop around for the best price and also be careful about VAT as I think you may have to pay that on some purchases and not on others . Of course when you buy physical silver in UK as an investment you also have to consider what GBP/ USD is up to as any change in  exchange rate in future will affect your return (as silver is priced in USD).

If you don't want physical then you could buy shares in a silver ETF (eg. SSLN) which is  backed by physical metal or if you want to spread bet it you could buy spot silver.

It all depends why you want to buy it. If just as an investment then you get a better return buying etf or spread betting (easier to cash in when you want to and potentially less hassles with tax). If you are worried the banking system will freeze up and you can't get money out at some point in the future ( possibly not likely but you can never rule it out) then it's physical - stored outside the banking system either with a company or stored somewhere by yourself.

I'm not an expert on this but have just read a bit about it lately as lots of articles suggesting silver will go higher over the next months / year.

    • Iron Ore Elliott wave Analysis: bullish impulse could resume. Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Zigzag Position - Black wave 4 of higher degree red wave (5)D Direction - Black wave 5 of higher degree red wave (5) Details - After the bears dragged this commodity to the marked 122.05-117.95 Fib-zone, a significant bounce could lead to a recovery to 150. The function of the present market movement is identified as counter-trend, indicative of a corrective phase within the larger Elliott Wave cycle. This correction on the H4 is structured as a zigzag pattern, denoted as the black wave 4 within the context of the higher degree red wave (5) of an impulse. Our focus shifts toward the anticipated direction of the market, which is poised for the initiation of the black wave 5, constituting a crucial phase within the broader red wave (3) on the daily time frame. A notable aspect of the current market dynamics is the recent downturn that saw the commodity retreat to the Fib-zone ranging from 122.05 to 117.95. This is a zigzag corrective pattern. The implication is that, amidst this bearish onslaught, we expect this zone to provide support for a significant rebound, paving the way for a recovery rally towards the 150 mark. At present, our analysis revolves around the ongoing counting of the black impulse wave pattern, with particular attention directed toward the completion of the 4th wave. This impending wave completion heralds the onset of the highly anticipated wave 5 of (3), representing a prized opportunity within the Elliott Wave framework. Critical to our analysis is the pivotal support level situated at 115.25. The rejection of further decline below this threshold would solidify the outlook for the impending wave 5 of (3), reinforcing the bullish sentiment. If this bearish correction stays above 115.2 and the price breaks above 123.5, renewed bullish interests for wave 5 of (3) could be assumed especially if the bullish response is swift.  In summary, the present market conditions offer a nuanced landscape characterized by corrective movements within the framework of Elliott Wave theory. While the completion of the 4th wave sets the stage for the anticipated wave 5 of (3), traders are advised to monitor key support levels diligently. As such, astute observation coupled with a thorough understanding of Elliott Wave principles will be instrumental in navigating the complexities of the market as it unfolds.

    • Wednesday's FOMC minutes confirmed that the Fed remains "highly attentive" to inflation risks with some officials warning of downside risks in overly restrictive policy but others seeing risks of inflation progress stalling. Despite 'higher for longer' rates remaining on the cards, the US dollar stays under pressure with June rate cut expectations remaining unchanged at around 54%. Equity indices rallied as Nvidia revenues soared in the fourth quarter as the world’s most valuable chip manufacturer benefited from a spending spree on artificial intelligence. The Nikkei 225 hit a new record high after 34 years while global stock indices advance on positive sentiment.  
    • Hi @Omegaguy123, Please note that this is due to the higher broker margin requirements which will need to be transferred to the client and make leveraged trading unfeasible. Thanks, KoketsoIG
