Historically, when the Gold vs. Silver ratio reaches an extreme level, and precious metals begin to rally, a reversion within the ratio takes place, which represents a revaluation process for silver prices compared to gold prices. This typically means that the prices of Silver will accelerate to the upside as the price of gold moves higher – resulting in a decrease in the ratio level and we expect that, for every drop of 5.0 points in the gold/silver ratio, the price of Silver should increase by 6.5% to 7.5% to the price of Gold.
…I believe a reversion process has already begun…[and that it] is about to explode as a dramatic revaluation event unfolds over the next 12+ months. This process will become more evident to…as the price of Gold continues to rally towards the +$1,750/ozt. level and as the price of Silver explodes higher in larger and larger advances.
… Our previous analysis suggested Gold will attempt a move to levels above $1,650 to $1,700 on the next breakout move higher [and] this…move will expose the price reversion event…[and] the expected Silver price advantage for all traders going forward.@Gold&Silver
Gold/Silver Ratio – Silver Price vs Ratio Level
We put together this reference table to assist all traders in understanding just how important this move could be to them. This reference table shows the current Gold/Silver price levels (in GREY) as the ratio levels change from 88 to lower levels.
- If the price of Gold were to stay at the same $1,426/ozt. level while Silver rallied to prompt an 82 or 77 ratio level,
- then the price of silver would move from the current price of $16.19/ozt. to $17.39 or $18.52 in order to reflect this decreased ratio level. That represents a 7.5% to 14.3% price increase.
- If the price of Gold advances to $1,650 or $1,750/ozt. while the ratio level drops to the 82 or 77 ratio level (because Silver advances fast[er] than Gold),
- then the price of Silver would move from the current price of $16.19/ozt. to $20.12 to $22.73. That move represents a 24.2% to 40.3% price increase in Silver when Gold increased only 15.7% to 22.7%.
- If the price of Silver advances even faster than our “what if” scenario, above, and Gold continues to advance as we expect,
- then the increased price reversion process taking place in Silver as a process of this revaluation event could result in a 70% to 110% fast[er] price advance in Silver than the price advance that takes place in Gold.
We believe the next upside price leg in Silver will target $19.50 to $22.75/ozt. This target range supports the highlighted area on our Ratio table (below). In other words, we believe the ratio level will attempt to quickly move toward the 70 to 77 level as Gold prices rally over the next few months. This would push silver up into the $22.50 to $25/ozt. price level very quickly.
- If Gold were to rally above $1,950/ozt. on an extended upside price advance before August or September,
- then we believe the reversion process would become extremely hyperactive in nature and the price of Silver could push well above $29~34 per [troy] ounce – may be even higher…
- If Gold were to move up above $1,750/ozt. ( (which is our expected target for the next leg higher) and the Gold/Silver ratio was to drop below the 55 level
- then the expected target price for Silver would be somewhere between $30 and $40/ozt. – more than 100% higher than the current price of Silver – and it could go well above $50/ozt. over the long run.
If you think $50/ozt. is unimaginable or unrealistic, we’ve just shown you why it is possible these levels could be reached before the end of 2019 or in 2020.
If you have not grasped the reality of what is likely to unfold over the next 6 to 12+ months in the global markets and that precious metals are the setup of the decade, then pay attention to the fact that gold and silver are poised for moves ranging from 40% to 240% over the next 12+ months depending on the scale and scope of this move…

I am convinced that silver will soon explode in price in a manner of unprecedented proportions, both in terms of previous silver rallies and relative to all other commodities. By unprecedented, I mean that the price of silver will move suddenly and shockingly higher in a manner never witnessed previously, including the great price run ups in 1980 and 2011. The highest prior price level of $50 will quickly be exceeded.

Silver is currently greatly undervalued relative to its average long-term historical relationship with gold and, as such, it is realistic to expect that silver will eventually escalate dramatically in price.

If the price of silver were based directly on the real physical silver market, silver’s price should be at $5,000 an ounce. I’m not saying the price of silver will reach $5,000 an ounce; I’m just saying that the actual PHYSICAL silver spot price is not only extremely undervalued, but that it is an illusion compared to the real value of an ounce of physical silver, since it is totally disconnected from reality. [Let me explain further.]

The global financial system is increasingly unstable and fragile, even more so than in 2008. The important question these days is: How will governments, central banks and financial systems respond to the ongoing crisis? Future prices for silver are dependent upon the answer to that question. I suggest three possible scenarios.
Gold and silver generally move in sync with each other and tend to move in the same direction. The relationship is such that there’s even an indicator that measures it – the gold/silver ratio. Many investors use the ratio to spot extremes in the pricing of either precious metal, and to spot trends, whether up or down. The ratio currently sits at approx. 80:1 and suggests that silver has some catching up to do.
The 70s pattern for silver is very similar to the pattern that currently exists. Therefore, I do not think it is wishful thinking that silver will reach the target of $675 as a minimum.

The supply of silver went down in 2015 due to lower scrap supply and I believe silver production from mines will not rise significantly in 2016 so supply will be subdued going forward. Demand however will keep going up. [IMO if you start] stacking silver you’ll be rich in exactly 5 years.
The current silver bottoming process, albeit longer, is very similar to that of 2001 to 2003. Back then that base set up a bull rally that continued until 2011. The USD is making its last attempts to go higher before experiencing a major decline and when that decline starts (which is likely to be soon), the silver price will take off in a big way.
Silver appears to be in the very late stages of its Head-and-Shoulders bottom and, with the price still not far off the Right Shoulder lows, we are at a very good point to continue accumulating silver investments.
Supply and demand trends are clearly poised to continue tightening the silver market and when the next crisis hits the silver price will be significantly impacted by this trend. It may not happen this year, but the 20,000-foot view of this market says a crunch is on the way. It’s supply/demand 101.
