The Hunt Brothers attempted to dominate the silver market by stockpiling silver in anticipation of market fluctuations. Their holdings once accounted for around a third of all non-governmental silver. By January 1, 1979, the silver price surged from a little over $6 to an astounding $49.45 per ounce in just a year, resulting in the government’s decision to flood the market with 165 million ounces of silver. This strategic move left the Hunt Brothers with substantial losses exceeding a billion dollars.
