Thread: Gold Silver Ratio Discussion Group

    It seems a bit early to be trading silver for gold. I would at least wait till 50:1 ratio or under. People may have reason to believe historical norms between gold and silver will not return, however if using pass behavior as a guide, I would say not close enough yet.

    I concur... 30:1 or more seems suboptimal imo.

    Gold $1,864 / Silver $27.9 = almost 67 Spot GSR
    AGE $1,989 / ASE $37.2 = About 53-1/2 retail Eagle GSR

    Pretty close to being down from the high ratio by 50%. I'm trying to trade half now, wait and see before swapping the rest. I'll take a 50% off sale/trade any day.

    I also think that a partial liquidation at this time seems prudent. The percentage to liquidate seems debatable. I am looking to move a smaller percentage. Historically, I tend to get out too early.

    Not silly at all. It could go either way. We all place our bets in the casino. Some will win. Some will loose. We will not know who will be which side of the ledger until accounts are taken at the end of the game.

    At this time, I am favoring a rotation of a small percentage of my silver into gold. I am not looking to go more heavily into fiat. If we were to look at today's action, gold & silver both dove for the floorboards as fiat moved up. Today I would be a looser. My outlook is longer term. I expect to end up positive at the end, but my moves are conservative, so I do not expect explosive returns. That's just me. Each will play this game their own way. It will be interesting to see how well different strategies produce gains.

    I'm new to stacking silver and I've read a bit about the gold/silver ratio. I have a question about the most efficient method to exchange silver for gold. Just to keep things simple, let's assume you have a sealed monster box of eagles, the gold/silver ratio at spot is 50 to 1, then ideally you would like to trade the 500 ounces of silver for 10 ounces of gold. However, since you are paying a premium in both directions of the exchange, you're probably going to lose ten to twenty percent in discounts and premiums? I'm just curious about how one would go about exchanging their silver for gold in the most efficient way possible in the real world. I would think that if the silver/gold ratio were somewhere between the 20/1 and 30/1 range that you would have a flood of silver stackers lined up at the bullion dealers to exchange their silver for gold. Any ideas on how to go about this? Thanks for your ideas!

    I have been buying for many moons, and I am fairly sure I am pretty near break-even.

    I am including numismatics in that estimation though... so if numismatics don't go fully belly-up, I may be doing ok.
