Mish's Daily

By Mish Schneider


Given the recent liquidity crisis in the banking sector, Tuesday morning’s CPI number could be an important driver in the Federal Reserve’s next move March 22nd.

As per the report, How to Grow Your Wealth in 2023, “The Federal Reserve is overly optimistic about inflation declining back to 2%.”

Also from the Outlook are Three interesting notes:

  • After inflation crosses 8%, it proceeds to higher levels over 70% of the time
  • Once inflation is above 8%, reverting to 3% usually takes six to twenty years, with a median of ten years
  • The lesson we should take from this is not that inflation is destined to move to new highs in the months ahead (after all, nearly 30% of the time, it is, in fact, cresting!), but that we dismiss that possibility at our peril.

Expectations for CPI are for a softer number than last month, or around 6%.

However, what if the number comes in more like 6.5%?

The silver to gold ratio is important to watch.

More from the Report:

“For 2023 one word and two expressions keep coming up:

The gold silver ratio represents the number of silver ounces it takes to buy a single ounce of gold.

Historically speaking, the gold silver ratio has rested somewhere between fifteen and ten to one, reflecting the average supply of each metal.

The ratio is most useful at its extremes. When the ratio has topped eighty, it has signaled a time when silver was relatively inexpensive in relation to gold.

Silver went on to rally 40%, 300%, and 400% the last three times this happened.”


The price chart of silver (SLV) shows it gapping above the 200-day moving average or green line.

The middle or Leadership Triple Play indicator gauges how well SLV is performing relative to gold. Currently, SLV has yet to cross the red line to begin to outperform-a highly inflationary sign if does.

The bottom Real Motion Indicator, show an increasing momentum, yet still below the 50-DMA like the price-no divergence between momentum and price at the moment.

The second chart is a 5-year historical look at the gold to silver ratio. Many analysts believe a move over eighty is bullish for silver.

The huge run in 2020 was based on stimulus money and the Reddit crowd focusing on SLV as a meme stock.

Subtract that, and you can see that over 90 is bullish for silver. Over 100 and off we go-bullish for the metals of course, and more alarmingly, a flashing signal on rising inflation.
