Tip 6/7: This is the century of silver

Tips to increase your wealth by investing in Gold & Silver

Tip 6: The previous century was for gold, this one is for silver.

During the past decade (2001 till 2010) both gold and silver performed very well in nominal terms. When looking at the gold to silver price ratio, most precious metals experts agree that the silver price will have to increase sharper than the price of gold in order to return to the historic average.

Gold and silver follow the same pattern up or down, but they still have their own dynamics. In April of 2011, the silver price peaked while gold did so only in September (that’s more than 4 months later). The gold/silver ratio is a reliable indicator to estimate which of the two metals will move the sharpest up or down.

Historically the average gold/silver ratio is 16/1. That’s the figure on average to which the ratio tends to move to on a very large timescale. You can consider that ratio as a reliable indicator because silver is approximately 16 times as abundant as gold in the earth. The same figure has been used by several cultures throughout history to define the values of their gold and silver based currencies.

Gold and silver both have a monetary value: they protect us during times of currency devaluations and inflation. Nevertheless, silver can create huge profits as well because of its sharp price moves.

Another way to look at the potential that silver can bring as an investment, is to consider the supply side. Silver is expected to encounter severe shortages because its increasing industrial usage while (at the same time) an increasing demand for investment. It’s important to understand that silver is being used in a wide variety of industries as a raw material for consumer and industrial goods. Silver is all around you: in your laptop, mobile phone, jewels, light switch, electrical products like TV or washing machine, your car, mirrors, solar panels, batteries, etc. Read more in this article on FutureMoneyTrends.com.

Now here is the key: silver is expected to encounter shortage in the short run. It means that the amount of physical silver available cannot meet the increasing investment demand. That’s probably one of the exceptional opportunities you can have to experience a gigantic boost of increasing value of an asset. We recommend to read the article that was published on this website: Silver, a once in a lifetime opportunity to increase your wealth. One tip we can give: buy and hold physical silver, untill the silver shortage has impacted the silver price.
