Silver has traditionally been a popular metal for China. However, the current trend indicates that China is now turning to the metal, not only for ornamental purposes but seeks it as an investment metal.
The Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) is the only exchange in China for trading silver. Since 2010, the silver futures exchange has continued to boom and has increased almost six times this year. Experts claim that people have turned towards the metal because of the stagnant stock and property markets with slow returns.
