79.04 as of this post. Gold going up a little while silver down a little. I'm buying Ag but staying away from Au. Just feels right for me.

I don't see where the ratio has been over 82 since 1995.

In 45 years, the GSR has only been between 80-90 5% of the time with the bulk of that in the early 90s. A huge buy signal IMO.

Distribution of Au:Ag Ratio
% of Months
10-20 0.4%
20-30 3.0%
30-40 18.5%
40-50 12.7%
50-60 19.4%
60-70 18.8%
70-80 20.0%
80-90 5.2%
90-100 2.1%

  • Ratios from 80 to 90 constitute 5.2% of the record. Almost all occurred during a three-year period from September 1990 to November 1993 when there was an oversupply of silver stocks, industrial demand was down, and prices languished from $3.65 to $5.00 an ounce.
  • Other than the three-year period mentioned above, there were only two months, in March 1995 and March 2016, when the monthly average ratio was above 80.
  • Ratios greater than 90 make up 2.1% of the record and also happened in that 1990-1993 interval. The ratio averaged over 97 in February 1991, a value that was exceeded only in 1939 at the end of the depression and beginning of World War II.

I’m loving it. September the new Perth mint lunar come out (year of pig) so I’m hoping for 3 more weeks of carnage.

This is about as high as it has been this century. We had a few years in the early 90s where it ranged between 80 and 100, but other than that this is it.

Dang how low can they go
Great question. If you recall there was that one brief lone spike down to $13.58 or so in Dec 1015. Before that you have to go back ten years to find a lower price. That is a lot of printed fiat ago.

If you can find low premium silver at this point it seems like a no brainer if you still have dry powder left.

I am just wonderin why some wise guy doesn't get the notion to use platinum to counterfeit gold coins? Platy is plenty malleable unlike the other density mimic; tungsten. So why hasn't this happened? I've never know the crooks to be this slow.

BF

BTW: that silver/gold ratio is totally out-of-whack! 85 WOW!

First of all, Tungsten isn't a precious metal - it is currently about $20/lb

Second, in the past 553 months, platinum has spent less than 20% of them below the price of gold.

Third, world production of platinum is less than 10% that of gold. It is RARE!

Seems like a lot of work, and a small window, to go through the trouble of counterfeiting platinum for gold.

Ratio dropping down out of the stratosphere on a big silver day. Have we turned a corner?

Silver gaining on the back of gold’s outburst today. Still unnoticed and unloved.
