How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

Now that the precious metals’ five-year cyclical bear market is acting like it’s been replaced by a vibrant bull run in the opposite direction (up!), many analysts who chided the ongoing rise in the mining stocks and metals that started in December 2015 are begrudgingly changing their “outlook” so they don’t get left behind.

Silver Buy Signal – 2016

The gold to silver ratio has been used for years to indicate buy and sell zones in both gold and silver. Why? At BOTTOMS in both gold and silver, based on 40 years of history, silver prices have fallen farther and faster than gold. Hence the gold/silver ratio reaches a relative high.

Of course it projects a massive deficit, increasing national debt, uses “funny” accounting, and does not address unfunded liabilities. Business as usual… Examine the last 100 years of US government expenditures and national debt – on a log scale in $ millions. Note that official government expenses have increased from about $750 million to about $4 Trillion, an increase by a factor of over 5,000.

For obvious reasons which we discuss extensively on Gold Silver Worlds, silver bullion provides the safety that people need in a world dominated by currency wars, unresponsible acts by governments and unseen counterparty risk.
