A weakened U.S. dollar was partially responsible for silver's price rise earlier this year. The recent strengthening of the dollar has now adversely affected silver prices. The economic crisis in Europe, led by concern over the recent bailout of Irish banks, has weakened currencies in the region and in turn, led to the improvement of the U.S. dollar. Visit to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

Concerns regarding China raising interest rates have also hurt silver prices recently. If China does raise interest rates as they are expected to, demand for silver could decline, as it would be more financially viable to hold onto the commodity instead of investing further into it. Currently, silver futures for December are down 5.3 percent.

Overall, it's been a strong year for silver and the recent price setbacks caused by the U.S. dollar, the European economy and Chinese interest rates may only be temporary and not reflective of a long-term decline.
