Any bets we hit 100:1 eventually?
Would be time to get the wife a second job, and sell the cat to the Chinese place down the street.

Are they doing that to keep people from buying gold? Thinking silver beats the system so the little guy gets fleeced? Are they using the ratio to force us in a direction. It's still only $1724 / $18.25.

Only my opinion here but I think that TPTB have more control over silver than gold. Silver is a smaller market, and more easily controlled/cornered. Gold is a tier 1 asset that is actively sought after by sovereign nations and central banks. It is not as easy to manipulate. The GSR is a nice indicator that lets us know where the market sits. When it is high the market is being suppressed, and public interest is low. When the GSR is low, suppression is diminished and public interest is up. This is only a rough rule of thumb but I believe the general concept holds water.

If it were 100:1, and a dealer would trade even up, who would trade for a big monster box of silver?
I think I would. Then find a place to store it....ln a lake...no, wait...lakes are drying up and the Mariana Trench is too far away...damn...it's always something.

Don't believe you'll find anyone to trade at this ratio, especially a dealer.

So when the BRICS bring out their currency do you think teh paper ratio will go to 2-3-400:1? The game is up long before that.
ds using the hunt brothers against us.

No idea. Maybe when that happens faith is the dollar is lost and the metals market storms higher. Maybe the ratio drops way down to 30:1 or lower?

I'm of the humble opinion that the GSR may no longer matter, seeing that it's been in the 70 range or higher for 5 years now, and peaking at ~120. Silber is largely an industrial, bi-product metal that ebbs and flows with the global economy. Anyone that thinks silber is anything more than that is probably going to be disappointed. It would be great for silber stackers to trade for gold, but a favorable GSR ratio (<~50), hasn't happened since ~2011. Will that favorable ratio ever happen again in our lifetime? I'm having serious doubts. Silber is a dog and an industrial commodity, not a hedge against inflation, as it's proven to be a failure in that regard recently. IMHO, silber is for stacking and collecting without financial expectations; anything more than that is essentially gambling and hopefully not losing your shirt. JHMO, I welcome you reply.

Just talked to a 20 year old today that said he and a few of his friends are buying both metals. They don't have much but he said "crypto is just digits on a screen. I've been using cash for as much as possible"

Monkey lost his hammer today. I guess he lit a rocket instead.
48 cents UP , Best percentage of all metals today.
Just don't have a wet dream about today. Possibly just a One Off.

Nice to see the GSR back down under 90. Let's see if we can maintain, and then keep moving.

I was going to buy when it hit 110+. Now I have to wait to trade the other way.

I did a fair bit of that back in 2020 when we briefly went to 125. I wouldn't mind watching the pendulum swing the other way at this point. As Jim has pointed out, premiums can radically change the actual ratio when trading out. For instance, using standard premiums on gold and silver eagles right now the ratio is closer to 60.

Has anyone seen any recent data on AISC for silver? (all-in sustaining costs). I think in recent years it has hovered around $10 - $11, but I suspect it is significantly higher now due to increasing energy and other costs.

It's in the mid 70's when you consider premium. I didn't calculate junk silver, but the premium there is stupid.
