A couple of articles that might be of interest. The first points out that with interest rate returns at zero, the opportunity cost of owning gold is also zero. Throw in the virus and political uncertainty and it's easy.
The second mentions the GSR (gold silver ratio). This is the historic exchange rate between the metals and for 100s of years has been 1 to 15. As I write, it's 1 - 83. While I don't think we'll ever get back 1-15, this ratio favors silver over gold on a relative basis. I concur. He also mentions leverage and rono jumps up and down in gleeful agreement. If indeed, we're beginning a bull market in the precious metals, the max leverage is with silver miners. Of the authors list, I've owned 7 over the years, mostly during the Big Bonanza running from 2002 to 2011. We're right on the verge of breaking above those highs but no where near the all time for silver. This occurred back in 1980 when the Hunt Bros tried to corner the market. Silver went to ~$50. Gold's all time was hit in 2011 at ~$1920. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-07-22/ever-lower-u-s-bond-yields-are-driving-gold-s-relentless-rallyhttps://seekingalpha.com/article/4360107-9-silver-miners-are-basket-of-opportunity
and so it goes,
peace and wear the damn mask,
