Skulderna i världen har aldrig varit så höga som de är idag samtidigt som man trycker pengar för att hålla systemet igång. Guld och silver har varit en del av det monetära systemet under flera tusen år. De senaste dryga 40 åren har man dock valt att lämna dessa ädelmetaller utanför och det har medfört ökade skulder och ett ohållbart system.

Notice that in all of these cases above – the Great Depression (which this is NOT), WW2 (which this is nowhere near being), and 2008 (which was a different kind of crisis) – gold underwent a MASSIVE SURGE in price:
  1. 1934: President Roosevelt famously devalues the dollar relative to gold from $20 to $35 per ounce AFTER CONFISCATING it. This represents a 75% move.
  2. 1944: The Bretton Woods Agreement pegs the dollar to gold at a ratio of $35 per ounce, which Washington defaults on, creating a 2,400% move in the 1970s.
  3. 2008: Gold rallies to an all-time high by September 2011 of $1,930 INTRA-DAY.

Hedge Fund Luminaries Are Lining Up Behind Gold Again

Money printing by central banks and vast state stimulus packages are rekindling interest in one of the oldest stores of wealth. It’s a revival of a trade that became popular in the wake of the 2008 crisis, as money managers piled into gold for similar reasons, but were ultimately disappointed as inflation was kept in check. Yet the unprecedented scale of the government response to the coronavirus crisis is feeding the argument that this time will be different.

Hedge fund luminaries including Paul Singer, David Einhorn, and Crispin Odey are among those bullish on gold, according to recent letters to investors. So are large asset managers like Blackrock Inc. and Newton Investment Management.
“Gold is the only escape from global monetising,” Odey wrote. Gold futures were the third-largest position held by his flagship Odey European Inc. fund at the end of March. “In the short term, the money will be made on the inflation bet.”
The logic is simple: the massive expansion of central bank balance sheets around the world must eventually dilute the value of their currencies -- most importantly the dollar -- leading to inflation of hard assets like gold. The price of the metal has already risen sharply this year, touching a seven-year high of $1,751.69 an ounce on Friday. But some believe it has much further to go.

At this stage it is still too early to conclude that silver has gotten enough momentum to capture some the lost ground, both against the dollar and against gold. For that to happen the metal first needs to break below 109 on the XAUXAG ratio and/or above $16.15/oz on SILVERJUL20, the April high and the 61,8% retracement of the February to March sell-off.

recessions, and extreme turmoil, can lead to a massive spike in the gold/silver ratio. Gold goes up, and silver stays flat (or falls).

  • In 1991 as the first Gulf War began, the ratio again reached 100:1.

  • Today we’re back again in that territory; as of this morning, the ratio is 110:1, and it’s been as high as 120 or more in recent weeks.
