Is the Gold:Silver ratio running out of steam?
As many of you are aware, the gold:silver ratio which represents the amount of silver required to purchase an equivalent amount of gold has always been considered a key metric in determining relative value in the two commodities. This ratio has been increasing steadily over the last few years to the point where it is now approaching historically high levels. As can be seen in the graph below, approaching these ratio levels in recent years has indicated potential opportunities for solid gains from purchasing silver.
When it was at these levels in 2003, the silver price appreciated from AU$6.77 to AU$19.34 in under 3 years. When it was at these levels in 2008, the silver price appreciated from AU$13.75 to AU$44.11 in just over 2 and a half years. Both periods represented very profitable buying opportunities for silver.
Like all trading, it’s extremely difficult to pick the peaks and the troughs and there is always the possibility for continued downside in the silver price. Over the longer term however, if you are looking to invest in the bullion market, recent history certainly suggests that now is possibly a good time to take a closer look at starting or increasing your silver investment.
