Silver, Gold and Broken Records

Silver, Gold and Broken Records

We may have started to sound like a broken record with our repeated stance in favour of silver over gold over the last 6-9 months, via our numerous bearish takes on the gold/silver ratio. But one broke that broke is the number of speculative longs in silver at the Comex, which reached a net 105,515 contracts, compared to gold net longs, which reached 172,666 contracts, but remain 50% below the record reached last summer.

Gold/Silver Ratio Weekly Chart and Gold and Silver Net Speculative Longs

Silver bears may be pointing to the failure to break above the 50% retracement of last year's high-low move, but the bulls remain fixated on silver's higher lows and the potential golden cross on the daily and weekly charts. The higher lows on the gold/silver ratio are the less obvious but more powerful signal.

 


Premium subscribers were told about the implications of a falling gold/silver ratio. Both gold and silver trades in the Premium Insights remain open and in the green.
