Monetary demand for silver and gold is returning, primarily as a store of value and as a form of savings and investment, because all the governments of the world continue to print up far too much paper money to pay for government spending that is counterproductive and hurts the economy. The lack of political will to reign in spending will continue to propel the gains in silver for at least the next decade. Regardless of the opportunities in the mining and exploration stocks, it is my opinion that silver and gold will continue to do very well for investors in the USA over the next decade due to political spending. But the rest of the world’s currencies have the same problem, and in most cases, remain in worse condition politically.
The silver to gold ratio is the number of ounces of silver equal in value to one ounce of gold.
Silver to Gold Ratio Today: 54:1
Silver to Gold Ratio Ten Years ago: 80:1
Silver to Gold Ratio for over 200 years: 15:1
Silver to Gold Ratio expected in the future: 10:1 or even 5:1
Conclusion: You can make 5 to 10 times more money if you buy physical silver, rather than gold, as silver’s gains outpace the returns of gold in the future.
Why will Silver’s gains continue to outpace gold?
