NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/10 -- On Wednesday the Federal Reserve announced that it plans to buy $600 billion in Treasury bonds to stimulate the economy, in a process known as quantitative easing, or in this case,"QE2." The aim is to drive interest rates lower in an effort to spark spending and lending. One of biggest concerns with this round of quantitative easing is that it will make the already weak US dollar even weaker. Traditionally, when the greenback takes a nosedive, the markets look to industries based on goods that have price levels that move inversely to the US Dollar. One attractive opportunity for investors in this case is Silver. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for the Silver Market and provides research reports on iShares Silver Trust (NYSE: SLV) and Silvercorp Metals, Inc. (NYSE: SVM).

According to Dow Jones newswires, the price of silver is trading near 30 year highs, and for the last month it has easily outperformed Gold. Silver ETFs represent an easy way for an investor to gain exposure to the silver price without having to store the actual bars of silver. Over the last month the iShares Silver Trust ETF has risen over 18% while SPDR Gold Shares -- the world's largest Gold ETF -- has only risen around 5.1%.
While the recent QE2 announcement gave silver a nice short term bump, there are some headwinds for this metal. The bears argue that the recent Republican win in the congressional elections will cause a long term dollar rally, and squash the precious metals market.
