The price decline of silver appears to be shaking investor confidence regardless of companies' operations. For silver royalty trusts like Silver Wheaton which do not do any physical mining, but rather buy silver from mines at preset prices, the price drops have partially led to the company's 17% slide in January. For companies that mine, refine and sell silver, the price drops have also had a notable affect on share prices. Such is the case for Hecla whose shares have fallen 19% in the last month.

Fluctuating currency markets still may make silver a good investment though. There are concerns that increased global economic stability will significantly devalue silver, but it does not appear to be the case just yet. 

Overall, silver's slight January slide is certainly worth noting but the industry remains relatively strong as a whole. Improved silver prices could possibly draw investors back but they currently do not appear overly confident in the industry.
