Gold-silver ratio to drop to 20; next silver price bull run will "shock" markets
(Kitco News) - The gold-silver ratio has never stayed this high for long, and it’s only a matter of time before prices normalize, this according to Jeff Clark, senior precious metals analyst of GoldSilver.com.
“I believe that the gold-silver ratio is probably going to fall to 20, maybe even below that in the next bull run because there’s going to be such a shock that people are rushing into silver,” he said.
“The gold market is so small that Warren Buffett could take less than 5% of his cash and buy every registered ounce of gold on the COMEX,” he said.
Clark noted that investors should position themselves before money flows into the metals space.
“It doesn’t take much demand to drive the price higher. It doesn’t take much demand to crimp supply,” he said. “If you believe we’re going to have a silver and gold bull market, you want to make sure you’re buying now before any of those kinds of things happen.”
Clark added that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is able to buy the entire market capitalization of all primary silver producers that are listed with only its cash.
