Gold vs Silver

Guest Post by Steve Saville

[edit]  Horning in a little on Steve’s post, the chart below was included in an NFTRH update on March 14, with this observation:

“While the GSR [gold-silver ratio] and HUI have indeed spent most of their time in negative correlation, the launch phase of the bull market (2000-2003) was different.”

Also, recall this public post yesterday:  Silver-Gold Ratio, Bottom Retest Completing?  Bottom line, Steve Saville’s views are in line with my own regarding the gold/silver relationship.

Gold vs Silver

We most recently discussed the long-term performance of the gold/silver ratio only two months ago, but the subject is sufficiently important to warrant some repetition. So, without further ado and with reference to the following monthly chart, here are the main points we made in our 4th February commentary:

Silver Gold Ratio, Bottom Retest Completing?

Putting in a real bottom (one that a major bull move can generate from) is not easy.  A subscriber just passed along a view of the Hulbert HGNSI showing that plucky gold newsletter writers got way over bullish right around the Ukraine hype period.  They and their cheer leading are their own worst enemy.

NFTRH 284 Out Now

Just continuing to do what I feel needs to be done in a market like this.  The Semi’s would lead a bull charge, while Tech, Biotech and Small Caps would lead the bear.  Throw in some indicators like BKX-SPX and especially the Equity Put/Call ratio (making a hidden bear signal that I for one found pretty compelling) and we lean bearish.

As for the precious metals?  Well, when we were noting a bearish CoT structure and Ukraine hype, the ‘community’ was noting breakouts and bullish objectives.  Nagging details like the CoT?  Cue the crickets…

That’s all under the bridge now.  It’s what’s directly ahead that is important.  NFTRH 284 looks ahead to coming signals, and it’s out now.
