Very limited downside risk with the GSR being this high...

Sorry for the code... I was just pointing out that this week gold seems to be leading silver to the upside, or at least less to the downside, when that is happening. As a result the GSR is slowly inflating again. In fairly short order we have gone from under 86 to over 89. I am wondering how long this phase will last (until silver sees another boost), and if we will see the GSR go back up over 90.

Just agreeing with your question about reaching 90 again, I used ???? as my code. LOL.

We have a long ways to go fellas.....

Gold is obviously leading - and the drivers are diverse but as serious as it gets...

Silver will tag along as it always does...but we wont see the GSR seriously decline until the public starts to get involved which hasnt really happened yet. But - if history is any indication - it will...

For me - I dont mind the ratio staying higher with gold rising...it just reinforces how much rocket fuel is being loaded into silver.

When silver takes off - its gonna be epic...

For the last 18 years at least, silver has always been the one to move first- whether up or down- and violently at times. With gold leading the charge this time (today not withstanding) and the GSR waaaay up there, I'm seriously questioning my own judgement and sanity for having swapped all in to the dregs.

If I understand your post correctly, you traded Au for Ag??

Long ago. Back in the upper 70 GSR range. Except for a few gold plated board finger clippings and my wedding band, I'm all in.

But I did get swapped into the gold right when the GSR dipped into the 30's a few years ago. I suppose every now and then even a blind pig finds an acorn.

You will be fine...

In the meantime while you are waiting to swap back into gold - you can use the silver bricks to prop doors open, make shelves using 1x6's, store some in front of boat to help keep the bow down, use as weights to hold down a tarp, etc... many uses...

Bold move. It is still alive as a plan.

In my case, I am as close to 50-50 as I could make it.

Made the last swap I want to for the gold to silver today. Now just sit and wait to see if it was the right choice. Went with silver stocks.

I take it you traded paper, not physical?
