Silver has been a particularly strong market in recent weeks with double digit percentage rises, but the precious metal markets can be fickle.
by Lawrence Williams, MineWeb.com
Around three weeks ago we published a note here on Mineweb pointing out that at times of gold price strength silver tends to do much better – although the reverse is also true in a period of gold price weakness. But as a generality when gold is moving upwards, the gold:silver ratio (GSR) tends to fall and silver prices benefit most in relation to gold.
Since we published the article, gold has achieved an increase of around 4%, while the silver price has risen by a rather more impressive 16%, with the GSR falling from around 66 to 59 – indeed at the peaks and troughs in the gold and silver prices over the three weeks the figures will have shown at times an even more impressive percentage rise in the silver price and fall in the GSR.
