Hey Big Jim, help a newbie out on the GSR theory.
I guess my question would be, "Does the GSR reflect the amount of overvalue or undervalue of Silver, with regards to Gold?".
That is to say, is gold the anchor and silver the floating asset? What if gold is over or undervalued?
What's your interpretation of it?

From Investopedia:
"For hundreds of years prior to that time, the ratio, often set by governments for purposes of monetary stability, was fairly steady, ranging between 12:1 and 15:1. The Roman Empire officially set the ratio at 12:1 The U.S. government fixed the ratio at 15:1 with the Coinage Act of 1792"

Big Jim probably knows more about the topic than me but it's my understanding that gold is the end game here. Gold for silver trades are getting you ready for silver to gold trades. Right now if you are playing the GSR you should be buying silver and trading gold for silver because the GSR is high. It's hard for me to do because it is a move that could take several years to come to fruition.

I'll just retain my position and see how things shake out and see if there's a chair left to sit in when the music stops

Speaking of which I have some dry powder and I am itching to go to my LCS and get Gold or Silver. With premiums on Silver Eagles and 90 Silver so damn high it's a hard decisions for me. Do I hold my dry powder or get gold or get silver or a little of both?

Hey Jodster,
My GSR theory is to amass the most ounces, cost effectively, whether Au or Ag.
Over or under value is real tough now due to the high premiums as Bman said above.
Look at some of the posts on the 2021 Thread around post #260, posts 263 & 267 are the best , that shows the real, IMHO, ratios that one could/ should be trading at. Pretty tough at this time.
I'm just a simple guy stumbling along trying to put away the most ounces. In the end I hope to have a ratio of more Au than Ag.
One rule I follow is never trade Govt issued Au or Ag for Generic. (Unless the margin is too good to be true)
