Future Silver Price of $150, $300 – Even $700 ozt. – Is Quite Feasible. Here’s Why (+7K Views)

Many analysts predict a parabolic rise in the price of goldgold-silver over the next 5 years and, as such, it is realistic to expect that silver will also escalate dramatically in price – but by how much? This article applies the various historical silver to gold ratios to come up with a range of prices based on specific price levels for gold being reached.

The Silver:Gold Ratio

How both gold and silver perform, in and of themselves, does not tell the complete picture. More important is the price relationship – the correlation – of one to the other over time, the silver:gold ratio:

  • the historical movement of silver is 90 – 98% correlated with gold,
  • silver is currently greatly undervalued relative to its average long-term historical relationship with gold with a current silver:gold ratio of 74:1 and
  • many analysts predict a parabolic rise in the price of gold over the next 5 years

As such, it is realistic to expect that silver will also escalate dramatically in price and most likely even more so than that of gold.

Let’s look at the silver:gold ratio from several different perspectives:

  • since 1985 the mean ratio has been 45.7:1
  • during the build-up to the parabolic blow-off in 1979/80 the ratio dropped from 38:1 in January 1979 to 14:1 at the parabolic peak for both metals in January, 1980.

Now let’s apply the projected potential parabolic peaks of $2,000, $3,000, $5,000 and $10,000 to the various silver:gold ratios mentioned above and see what they suggest is the parabolic top for silver.

Silver’s Potential Price Range With Gold At $2,000

  • Gold @ $2,000 using the ratio of 45:1 puts silver at $44.44
  • Gold @ $2,000 using the ratio of 14:1 puts silver at $142.85

Silver’s Potential Price Range With Gold At $3,000

  • Gold @ $3,000 using the ratio of 45:1 puts silver at $66.67
  • Gold @ $3,000 using the ratio of 14:1 puts silver at $ 214.29

Silver’s Potential Price Range With Gold at $5,000

  • Gold @ $5,000 using the gold:silver ratio of 45.1 puts silver at $111.11
  • Gold @ $5,000 using the ratio of 14:1 puts silver at $357.14

Silver’s Potential Price Range With Gold at $10,000

  • Gold @ $10,000 using the gold:silver ratio of 45:1 puts silver at $222.22
  • Gold @ $10,000 using the ratio of 14:1 puts silver at $714.29

Conclusion

It would appear that, any way we look at it, physical silver is currently undervalued compared to gold bullion and is in position to generate substantially greater returns in the future than investing in gold bullion.

  1. Thanks for posting this article, I believe it does a great job of explaining why Silver may even out preform Gold as THE PM to invest in.

    I’d also add that Silver can be traded and/or used to swap/barter with without calling as much attention as using Gold or any other PM.
