The iShares Silver Trust
The $12.5 billion silver exchange-traded fund has replaced SPDR S&P 500 ETF
Nearly 295 million shares of the silver ETF changed hands on Thursday, a record, as the fund dropped more than 10% and silver prices were crushed by profit taking and a spate of margin hikes.
As of May 5, the silver ETF had 338.4 million shares outstanding.
The amount of bullion held by iShares Silver Trust has fallen to 10,269 metric tons from more than 11,000 metric tons amid the selling.
