Last week we had a look at the Gold state of play, this week I would like to have a look at the situation with silver.
Comparing silver prices to the M2 money supply we see that it has touched an historic bottom. This means that relative to the amount of money in cash, current accounts, savings accounts, retail mutual funds and time deposits under $100,000.00, silver is the cheapest it has ever been.
Silver is about half the price it was in 1980, I know of no other commodity that can be bought for half of its price of just over 42 years ago.
Silver has just had its strongest November performance in 52 years
For silver just to catch up with other commodities it will need to increase in price by at least 80% according to the chart below.
I believe that as commercial uses are growing, the supply situation is worsening and as the monetary system is further abused, prices will rise exponentially. When the manipulation is stopped, 80% will be a tiny percentage of the real catch up.
Over the past few years, the gold and silver miners have estimated their companies to be undervalued and have been buying back their own shares. When the insiders are purchasing their own shares that is usually a good sign that it is time for the retail market to buy too.
If we compare the spot price of gold to the performance of the gold and silver stocks, we see that the stocks have far underperformed the spot gold price, whilst generally following the spot price pattern. This leaves lots of room for the stocks to perform, even without major moves in the gold or silver prices.
I am wondering if we should be ignoring the price gyrations in the gold, silver and platinum markets, while the market riggers fix their books for the year end.
