Federal Reserve on Thursday (13/9/2012) decided to launch a new program of open-ended bond purchases. This is also known as Quantitative Easing 3 (QE3). QE3 will buy $40 billion of agency mortgage-backed securities each month, starting Friday. It’s also keeping in place Operation Twist (another stimulation package). The bottom line is the central bank will be adding $85 billion of long-term securities each month through the end of the year.
Right after the news, silver price shoot up to $34.70 (almost $2 rise):
US Dollar and silver will always work on the opposite direction. What does it means? When the value of US Dollar drops, silver price rises; when the value of US Dollar rises, silver price drops. When QE3 is launched, it is an action to devaluate US Dollar (lowering the value of the paper currencies), which means the value of US Dollar drops, so consequently silver price reacted with it and went up almost $2 within minutes.
Also take note of the open-ended bond purchases mentioned above. In layman terms, that means Fed will continue devaluating or lowering the value of US Dollar as long as they want. There is no end to it. In other words, the potential for silver price to go up is also no end. Silver price will continue to rise and rise and rise and rise…
