Silver Offers More Value Than Gold In This Market

Silver Offers More Value Than Gold In This Market

Pessimism towards the “poor man’s gold” has gone too far. In fact, I’m expecting silver to provide investors with a better return than gold bullion over the next 24 months. If gold bullion prices were to return to their high of $1,900 an ounce, the gain from today’s gold bullion prices would be 60%. If silver were to return to its high of $50.00 an ounce (achieved in 2011)—the gains from silver’s current trading level would be 194%.

What Has Recent History Shown About Inflation, Debt, Prosperity?

Wars will continue but may not be decisively won or lost. Debt and currency in circulation will rise exponentially. Consumer prices will continue increasing.
Gold, silver, crude oil, gasoline and food will become much more expensive. Voters will continue voting for politicians and wars even though both cause prices to rise. The number of Americans on food stamps (SNAP) will continue rising. Unemployment statistics will fall in election years but the actual number of Americans working full-time jobs will decline.

Gold vs Silver Investment Demand In 2014 – Spot The Difference

Gold vs Silver Investment Demand In 2014 – Spot The Difference

With declining prices, investment interest in the metals should be trending lower. That appears to be partly right. As the following charts show, interest in gold investments as evidenced by gold ETF’s (the most popular Western gold investment vehicles) has been trending lower along with the gold price. However, the opposite trend has been observed in silver. As the first of the two charts shows, silver demand as evidenced by silver ETF’s has been trending higher.

Gold vs S&P 500: Insights From The 25-Year Chart

The gold vs S&P500 ratio at the gold peak in 1980 was about 8. The ratio was trending downward from 1980 to about 2001. Subsequent to the stock market crash of 2000, 9-11, and the massive increase in spending and debt, the ratio now trends upward.

Gold Price vs U.S. Debt Ratio In 2014: A Major Disconnect

Gold Price vs U.S. Debt Ratio In 2014: A Major Disconnect

Gold has tracked the expansion in US debt pretty handily. The correlation between the two is +0.86. In 2011, the rise in the gold price became overextended relative to the rise in US debt. Then it decoupled and went in the opposite direction. This is a similar trend to what occurred in the early 1980s. And if one expects that relationship to resume, then gold looks anomalously cheap relative to the rising level of US debt.

Silver’s Disconnect: Silver Price Falls Amid A Strengthening Physical Market

While all precious metals have dropped, the silver price has suffered the most. As a monetary metal, it seems to defy logic that silver has plummeted while debt levels have soared, money printing is at historic levels, and fiscal deficits remain stubbornly high in spite of record federal tax revenue. But the disconnect is bigger than just the price vs. silver’s monetary role.

A stagnant job market and poorly disguised inflation is the “new normal” for Americans.

Chart Analysis – Gold And Silver Price Trending Lower Until Demand Returns

The breaking of support in September is a narrower range bar relative to a similar break of support in the 2nd Q, six bars from the right on the Qtrly chart. Irrespective of where price may find support, the developing market activity shows no sign of bottoming, and the trend will not change until a bottom forms. Time-wise, this does not argue for a near-term turn from down to at least sideways, before going higher.

The red line is clear: as of 2013, when the futures market has been pushing precious metals prices significantly down, the physical market has been reviving every time again.
