Exclusive knowledge, tips, and advice from Gold&Silver that you can't find anywhere else.
A lot of readers liked our article on how much cash could flood the gold market once institutional investors start buying. Now it’s time to look at silver. And as most readers know, the silver market is much smaller than gold, meaning it could be easily overwhelmed—much more than gold—if these investors begin to take interest.READ MORE

I once asked my institutional investor friend, who used to work at Goldman Sachs and has been a gold owner for many years, what would make him buy more bullion. Without hesitation he said, “When the price breaks out.”Well, as is clear to the world, gold has broken out of its long-term trading range.My friend is not alone in this sentiment of waiting to buy an investment until it’s rising.

Silver decisively pierced through $19 this morning. Gold is up, too, by 1.2%, but silver has risen 3.4% as we write. With silver’s outperformance, the gold/silver ratio has now fallen to 81. Since the gold/silver ratio peaked at 93 in June, the silver price has jumped 30%. We’ve shown many times that once the ratio begins to reverse it has quite a ways to fall. It hit 31 in 2011, and 17 in 1980. As many of our readers know, Mike Maloney is convinced we’ll see a repeat of the 1980 low. That implies MUCH higher silver prices.READ MORE
One of the articles that elicited a lot of reader feedback was our report on the ratios for gold and silver to real estate.

The silver price has punched through $18, the first time in nearly two years. Gold is at 6-year highs, but silver has outrun it in August, currently up 10.1% so far this month, vs. an 8.1% rise for gold. It's clear that silver has now joined the party. The gold/silver ratio is down to 85. But that’s still historically high, meaning silver is still a bargain compared to gold. As we move forward, we fully expect to see silver outperform gold.READ MORE
