Silver: Gold Ratio, Stock Market Indices & Sector Levels

blankThe market remains on solid footing.

With today’s action in equities mixed, while many commodities followed through on this week’s rally, two scenarios remain omnipresent.

First, a potential worst case given the artificially low interest rates and all the geopolitical uncertainty:

Inflation currently at manageable numbers, turns to hyperinflation at unmanageable numbers.

Secondly, the potential best case:

This rally in commodities means global demand is increasing, thereby signaling overall economic growth.

Meanwhile, silver futures outperformed gold futures today as the silver to gold ratio got stronger in favor of silver.

Historically, that signals the start of increasing inflation.


With both of those possible scenarios in mind, let’s examine the ratio chart.

In July, we saw the ratio between silver and gold drop near all-time lows.

Then, once the ratio cleared the red line or a short-term moving average, silver got busy.

As with all sudden and fierce rallies off the lows, profit taking set in and since October, the price of silver has been consolidating.

Today, silver started to accelerate once again, thereby outperforming gold. I also like how the ratio is clearing the dotted line or Bollinger Band.

Gold miners also took off. Yet, silver has top status for the time being.

The implications support an inflation theory.

What we do not know yet, is at what point does the rising commodity and silver prices look healthy for equities versus at what point does that ignite too much inflation?

Regardless, my prediction leans towards the latter. For now, it’s been fun holding both a few of both equities and commodities.
