Silver Bug Profile: Adam Hamilton

Any individual in the world can be a gold or silver bug, even if it is just for speculative purposes. Adam Hamilton often discusses financial markets from a speculative point of view, and he recently shared some interesting thoughts on the silver price action. 

Who is Adam Hamilton?

With so many people active in the world of finance, it has become impossible to know everyone or what they are up to exactly. Adam Hamilton looks at himself as a “lifelong student” of the many different financial markets. Not just to learn more about their intricacies, but also for speculative purposes

One core aspect of making money in the financial sector is buying low and selling high whenever such an opportunity arises. Hamilton often tends to buy low even when the majority of traders expect a lower value to be hit in rather quick succession. 

This approach certainly carries its own set of risks, but it can also be a very profitable approach to speculating and investing. As a result, Hamilton tends to sell even when an asset is currently in a bull trend. It is often wise to pocket profits, rather than hold out for something that may never materialize.

It is also worth noting that Adam Hamilton is the founder of Zeal LLC, a financial-market research company. The newsletter users can sign up for are mainly written by Hamilton himself, as well as a few other contributors. 

Adam Hamilton on Silver in 2018

Analyzing the different financial markets will often draw one’s attention to specific assets or commodities. In recent years, Adam Hamilton has begun writing a bit more on the silver market, and where the price may be headed in the near future. Albeit gold will draw more attention, silver is not an investment to be slept on either.

Back in 2018, Hamilton already hinted at how the price of silver may go through a bullish spell.  While the market clearly stumbled shortly afterward, those who bought in near April 2018 saw the price rebound fairly quickly. Today, they are making pretty decent profits. Precious metals are not a get-rich-quick investment option, as they will often perform well over longer time frames.

Adam Hamilton on Silver Today

One recent article focuses on the Q1 2020 fundamentals for silver miners. In the article, Hamilton gives an overview of how silver mining operations have performed during the first quarter, as well as the challenges they have faced along the way. 

As one would come to expect, most mining operations have very mixed – and primarily disappointing – results in Q1. That has not affected the price of silver in a negative manner, although there may be a bigger issue at play here. Overall silver production was already on the decline prior to COVID-19 shutting down most operations.

Despite the struggles and rather negative performance, the year 2020 can still be prominent for silver. Hamilton claims how “silver remains too cheap compared to gold”. This is evident when looking at the gold-silver ratio, which is turning in favor of the latter metal.
