That's such a ridiculous statement....if silver is so worthless why is it so widely used in electronics and a whole host of devices in industry? Last time I checked computers, radar, solar panels weren't free or called a worthless debt instrument.
Silver lost it’s monetary value once central banks came into being. It was used traditionally for smaller transactions. Once the need for that went away with paper currency backed by gold, silver lost its monetary role. And unfortunately that’s likely never going to change.
So a 9:1 ratio would be for every 900 oz of silver you should have 1 oz of gold?
If time is of the essence I'd say a 5:1 ratio might be a little bit more practical on a budget.
500 oz per 1 oz of gold. Not a bad goal
Silver stopped being money because they literally found mountains of it in Mexico and they would have been the wealthiest nation on earth! If you read the mining reports of the primary silver miners you'll see the gold silver ratio is more like 80:1
buying gold,silver is not investing it s trading, u give currencies and u get money(gold/silver) or viceversa... this is not benefitting the society at all, not benefitting the whole economy at all. we have to invest in people,good people,honest people!!! if we miss this concept nothing will improve.. just imagine if everybody will buy and sell gold instead of invest in companies.. how good companies will get money?!?
Hey Mike thanks for all of your videos. I just wanted to say that it would only take 10 million people investing less than $2000 a year at the current prices to wipe out the yearly annual production of both gold and silver. 10 million people is roughly .00133333% of the worlds population thus they could be the new elite if they actually stick to buying up all of the worlds yearly gold and silver production. Just my theory and thoughts, what would you have to say about it. Hope you are in good health, and yes i buy both gold and silver and am every increasing my supply based on when the price goes up or down.
Oh, and just one more statistic. Last year Starbucks took in $3 billion more in sales that it would have cost to purchase the worlds gold and silver annual production supply. There is a reason why these metals are called precious metals but very few people really understand how valuable they can be for us.
And diamonds should be a different price than they are too, but they are much more expensive than they naturally would be because of human social/political interference. Isn't the more important question 'what is the ratio that the government in your country will allow for gold/silver?'
I buy gold and silver, and I'm overweight silver right now. my concern is, if I'm right, how will I cash out? if silver goes through the roof what will I sell it for? devalued dollars? I can't wrap my brain around the end game. I want to get rid of cash for real money, but when I want to cash in my real money, what will I exchange it for????
Stop the bullshit go to the source the best the very best Merrill Jenkins.... Edwin Vieira ....Rodger Sherman... Benjamin Franklin ...Benjamin Franklin warned you of the Jew who are not Jews but bloodthirsty asiatics John 8:44.... white people are not Caucasians this is a lie...white people did not come from Eastern Europe white people did not come from Asia across the caucus mountains through the caucus pass you are not Caucasian stop the bullshit...
lilbromarky must have eaten paint chips as a kid. because his logic makes no sense. We already know it's being manipulated. We also know Silver also has more industrial uses than gold. What we don't know is why your mom couldn't have swallowed you and saved the rest of us from her moronic off spring. ugentic laws can't come fast enough.
Gold up cause usd/jpy is now down.
Gold is not gold...its a deravative with the name gold. But it has nothing to do with gold.
Thats why you buy physical low and give the market the finger and just laugh....You just screwed the screwed system in place of manipulating the price of the hard asset.
U win they loose.
Its an asset. Its yours. Its solid. Its constitutes time effort and money in raw form. Just like a house a forest a 70s car, its your hard asset and will always be there and your kids.
Wealth is not digits in the bank. Wealth is your hard assets not retained by others.
For Silver set your chart price levels to increments of $1.11 $2.22 or $4.44 or $8.88... brings out all the support resistance levels very clearly.

Gold and Silver have been real money going back thousands of years.
If there is so much of an abundance of silver sitting around why did they take it out of our coins back in the 1960's?
I wonder what the price of gold/silver would be with hundreds of trillions of derivatives priced into the picture?
Yes, it really is different this time! It's not just gold and silver that's got my attention. Uranium, lithium and graphite have excellent potential as well. Would you agree that diversifying with junior miners for the little guy like me is a good thing.
Silver's my favorite and owning some physical is a wise idea. Just look at Venezuela.
Nice to see the two of you together again.
All the best,
The fact that the presence between gold and silver in the ground has a certain value, does not mean their price should have the same ratio. The ratio with plutonium is even more lopsided, does not mean the price should have the same ratio. Some things are just useless. How much Livermorium is their in the earth's crust? Not a lot likely. But no reason for it to command a high price on the market.
If as Mike says nowadays silver is a byproduct of mining other stuff "Essentially free", and that gold and silver are currently not used as money. Does the ratio actually matter?
Or (given all other things equal and minus manipulation) would a sensible ratio be something like 20:1 or 30:1?
I just can't imagine any scenario where it gets down to 10:1
Even though people here wish to see both gold and silver skyrocket in terms of $'s there really is only one reason to hold these two metals; They are bulletproof insurance to the madness of governments around the world who have overdosed on printing money out of thin air and issuing ever increasing loads of debt. Beside this there really is no reason to invest in gold and silver(other than collectibles of course). Unfortunately, we are at the crossroads in history where not having a small amount, in fact, any amount, invested in gold or silver as very ignorant.
1:04 Mike Maloney you know better than that. Just because there is 9 times more gold than silver mineable does not mean that DEMAND for Gold and Silver is equal. You are assuming demand for gold and silver are the same and they are not. I'm so tired of hearing this nonsense from the silver community. The price of silver is what is what it is today because of supply and demand. There is no phantom price. Get over it.
he didn't imply that - he implied through a few different statements that the monetary usage in the past in a given region would put demand/supply at around 9:1 in some places, 4:1 in china, 5:1 in egypt, etc.. and that, in a free market system of trading with gold/silver/etc they would find their natural 'value' in purchasing power in a ratio that roughly equaled supply - because demand for monetary metal was agnostic - did not matter whether it was silver or gold - the purchasing power reflected the relative supply.
You're very right on this, for some reason silver is not as much in demand. When the silver/gold inflation story was ripe a few years ago, silver neared $50/ounce and since then price has dropped, then again silver is supposedly the more volatile of the two, meaning it falls harder than gold and that is true. The thing with gold is, big financial institutions and investors buy gold instead of silver because IF they are wanting to hold it physically which I assume they would, otherwise why invest in a tangible asset, then they would need tremendous space to store all that silver and so the costs of holding silver would actually more expensive than gold. That's why the smart money holds gold. However when and if the general public actually follow the smart money which we saw a case of a few years ago nearing $50 / ounce, and if all the people in the world due to the internet being available everywhere and news reaching all corners in a few minutes, were to get into silver, then it would spike dramatically. Why? Because regular investors or working people don't have much to buy gold, they'd buy silver and that's where the magic MAY happen in terms of price. If anyone has a rebuttal or counter argument to this please reply because that would be constructive and we can learn from one another, without getting into a shitfest, keep it focused, thanks.
It doesnt matter what the demand is according to silver pundits. There's 9 times as much silver as gold in the earth's crust so the price of gold should be 9 times that of silver. Hey in other news, I have a one of a kind piece of art that I created. Since there is only 1 of this artwork in the entire universe the value is 1 million kajillion dollars. Nevermind the fact that no one wants to buy it.
If the naturally occurring gold to silver ratio is 9:1, why is it assumed that silver is undervalued with respect to gold? Why can we not say that gold is overvalued with respect to silver? Since silver is now around $17/oz., could we not say that the true price of gold should be $153/oz.?
Whenever I hear this ratio argument explaining why silver should be trading at a higher price, it is always assumed that the baseline price for gold is correct, not the other way around, or even some value between the two.
Unless and until there is a true free market in the metals, we don't know what they should be trading for anyhow.
Because in order for gold to be where it is there needs to be mutual buying and selling at that price. If the price of gold goes down and people refuse to sell at that price, yet demand stays stable or rises, the price will find equilibrium. Supply and demand. This especially applies to tangible commodities.
The same applies to silver. Half of it is used in industry. In the other half of supply every coin has 300 people laying claim to it. Currently there is this phenomenon of buying and selling a virtual piece of silver. This skews the price to the downside as it gives the illusion that there is 300x more silver in existence. What if 300 people had a paper claim to one house? It is obviously a sign that it is undervalued in the tangible sense.
As they said, the precious metals market is small with much room for potential bidders.
it's worse than that - if it wasn't fiat you would not be required to use it - fiat is 'by decree' - in other words, you MUST use it to pay taxes and fees to the 'gubmint'. The fact that it's backed by nothing is adding insult to injury. Crypto is not backed by anything either, but with bitcoin there will NEVER be more than 21 million units. Thus it can serve as a store of value if people keep using it to exchange for goods/services/labor.
PMs are the ultimate form of value storage, but not really very portable compared to BTC.
NBF1865 I agree. Fiat currency is the mechanism by which the ones in power/the controllers steal wealth from the people with inflation and taxes. Fiat currency is a piece of paper backed by nothing (FAITH??)
+NBF1865 Yes, I know all about fiat currencies and how they work. Doesn't change my answer in my previous comment. The debt clock amount shown is a ratio and is not meant to be taken as the current value in dollars of silver or gold or any other thing listed. As long as you can go to a store and buy food or a car or an ounce of gold with dollars, then dollars have value. If you don't like fiat currency I will take it off your hands for the value of the paper that it's printed on, if you like. LOL
