So far just a normal correction...but we are reaching the point where if the ratio continues to climb - it will negate the rally for a bit and open up the potential for a higher ratio...

Ratio is still at historically very, very high levels...
Commercial shorts are historically very, very short right now...
Large specs are very, very long right now...

Epic battle going on...

Yes, it is when the market looks relatively placid from the outside that the real turmoil is occurring internally. Epic battle for sure...

Odds favor a rising ratio from here...at least for a bit...

We need about 82 to reverse the trend short term...

"The Crime of 1870" is why silver is suppressed - as explained in "Coin's Financial School" by W.H. Harvey in 1894. The best book on silver there is! If you want to understand Bi-metalism and free coinage and how we were robbed of freedom and prosperity by the gold standard, it's in this pamphlet.

Thanks for the link, a real eye opener. I had forgotten about free coinage.

Just curious....

I know a lot more people here "appreciate" gold much more than they do silver.
Throughout different threads, I've seen several people proudly post that they traded silver for gold when the ration was decent.
But, is anybody actually trading gold for silver right now? playing the ration trade? with the anticipation of trading back when the ration changes once again?

Current 83.6 to 1

I'd love to trade Au for Ag, no one seems to want to do it.
JMHO-I believe trading Au for Ag at or above 80/1 is a great trade.

See? Here's the thing...

Any value transfer (Notice I didn't use the term 'investment') I have made in the past in those two metals has been for preservation of wealth. I had never sold or traded an ounce of either one before it all went to the bottom of the lake. I'm not a speculator, I'm a saver and a stacker. The markets are manipulated and I'm not going to speculate what's going to happen by messing with my wealth.

I may be dead wrong but that's how I think about it.

I like silver but, other than a relatively brief bump to ~$50/oz, it's never really gone much past $20. The stuff is heavy and difficult to store in comparison to the yellow stuff.

The smart money is.

The big money? Probably not. Silver is simply too small of a market.

Whathey're talking about is just a way to save/stack more than you otherwise would have been able to.
....and there's no speculation involved.

Let's suppose you bought 40 oz of silver and you don't do do anything with it, just hold.
Many years later you still got your 40 ozs.
.....but let's suppose you sold it and bought an ounce of gold when the ratio dropped below 40:1
Now you got an ounce of gold. Hey! Way to go man!
....and you hold it until the ratio hit 90:1 and sell it for 80 ozs of silver. (There may be premiums involved)
Now you got 80 ozs of silver without having had to actually spend any more money than you originally spent on the 40 ozs of silver.

Then rinse wash and repeat. Except next time you get two ounces of gold that are then used later on to acquire 160 ozs of silver that is later used to get 4 ozs of gold witch is used to to get 320 ozs of silver, and on and upwards it goes.
....and all for the original cost of the 40 ozs silver.

If all you did was buy and hold, to have the same amount, you incur the costs of 320 ozs of silver over the same period of time.


If the ratio doesn't move to those extremes, you still got the pm's you currently got, so nothing lost. Just sit tight and wait for it to tell you what to do.
....and there's no speculation as the ratio is what it is at any given time. Ie: you are not trading in anticipation of it moving in a particular direction. Because when the trade is made, it's only because of what the ratio currently is.
