Has the Price of Gold & Silver Reached Equilibrium ?


Recommended Posts

We all ask the same questions - to buy gold or silver ?
Up until Brexit, silver could be purchased VAT free or with very low VAT from the EU but not any longer.
That kind of slants the choice for us UK folks.
People regularly commented that gold was more of a preservation of wealth whilst silver was discussed as having much more "upside" meaning could be more profitable in the shorter term.
These speculations were generally based on the gold / silver price ratio.
If this ratio was high, as it certainly was, then there were 2 means of interpreting the data - either gold was overpriced or silver was underpriced by comparing both metals.
My belief was gold was over-priced compared to silver and I have been patiently waiting for gold to fall.

Now looking at the 25 year chart it appears as if there is some return to a near average price around 60:1.
You can interpret this as ' not an unreasonable time to acquire either or both these metals ' so take your pick if you wish to invest in PMs.

Nice info. 

I feel gold is underpriced when compared to the growth of base metals over a 50 year time period. 60 to 1 to me is where it should sit but would have been nice to see the same growth as copper, tin, lead ect. If in the future there was a correction, then silver should follow gold nicely. Just my thoughts.
