We go over the increases in silver futures margins that are now being required on silver positions. The implications of this are:

  • For every silver future position, an additional $1000 has to be posted as margin;
  • Margin is used when a market has more volatility, such as expecting a bigger price move in a given direction;
  • The margin is used as collateral against the futures positions moving against the holder;
  • In this case, the exchange is saying they expect larger than normal moves in the price of silver;
  • Silver is the only commodity that had an increase in margin requirements, whereas every other commodity was not changed or margin was reduced;
  • We infer that larger silver moves are coming on the futures market;
  • And the silver shorters will have to put up more money to expand their positions against the silver bulls.
