Buying Mania Will Push Silver Price Much Higher As Dow Jones-Silver Ratio Falls Back Towards 50/1

Just like the current market frenzy pushing Bitcoin to new all-time highs, the same sort of buying mania will also push the silver price to new highs. Even though the silver price and precious metals sentiment have fallen considerably, the market has no clue just how undervalued the shinny metal truly is.

Very few investors realize that the Dow Jones-Silver ratio back in 1981 was 50/1.  Which means, 50 ounces of silver would buy the Dow Jones Index 46 years ago.  Today, the Dow Jones-Silver ratio is trading above a staggering 1,200/1.  Thus, it takes 1,200 ounces of silver to by the Dow Jones Index today as the ratio is nearly 25 times higher today than it was in 1981.

Of course, a large percentage of the silver price increase during the 1970’s was due to the Hunt Brothers acquiring a lot of the metal during the decade.  However, a great deal of institutions came behind the Hunts and also bought silver during the latter part of the 1970’s.  Lastly, we had the typical “Brain dead” public come in and buy at the top.  It is so unfortunate that the public doesn’t understand long term investing or wealth preservation.  Instead, they buy as much stuff on credit today and then worry about paying for it all tomorrow.

Bitcoin Hits New Highs While The Silver Price Continues To Languish

According to the article, Bitcoin Soars Above $1,600 On Relentless Japanese Buying Frenzy:

Four days ago we reported that bitcoin has surged above $1,400, hitting a new lifetime high, while rising above $1,500 on certain Chinese exchanges. Since then, bitcoin’s latest exponential rise has only accelerated, and moments ago the price of the cryptocurrency surged as high as $1,600 on the Coinbase exchange, rising as high as $1,655 on the troubled Bitfinex exchange.

The pace of loan growth has been declining recently. What does it mean for the gold market?

As the chart below shows, the annual rate of growth in commercial and industrial loans has been declining since 2015. In March, bank loans increased just 3 percent – the level not seen since the last recession.

Chart 1: The annual rate of growth in commercial and industrial loans from 1948 to March 2017.


And it’s much worse on a monthly basis. As one can see in the chart below, in March, commercial and industrial loans granted by all U.S. commercial banks declined 0.7 percent, the second drop in a row.

Chart 2: The monthly rate of growth in commercial and industrial loans from February 1947 to March 2017.

Central Bank Balance Sheets have increased by $10 trillion in the last decade and $1 trillion YTD in 2017.


What happens when an extra $10 trillion in central bank debt plus another $80 trillion or so in other global debt is created in a decade?

America’s renewed desire to escalate military tensions is a front for America’s continual financial war, this time directed at North Korea, Syria and possibly Iran. This is likely to be the opinion of China’s strategic advisors. We analyse the geopolitics and economics behind America’s war strategy from China’s perspective, concluding that it is entering its final phase. China’s exit plan appears to be to tie the pricing of energy and then other major commodities to gold, returning to the pre-1971 status quo, when the dollar was just a settlement link between commodity prices and gold. Except this time, the dollar itself will be side-lined, so far as China is concerned, which will use the yuan instead for its empire, which will be far larger than that of the US in time, measured by GDP.


The day President Trump assumed office, it appeared that at last there would be détente with Russia, leading to America’s withdrawal from unwinnable conflicts and towards a new peaceful agreement between these long-term enemies. However, within the traditional presidential bedding-down period of one hundred days, Trump has gone from his electoral platform of disengagement from foreign ventures to overt aggression in multiple locations.

Something major has changed his thinking. Trump has committed no less than five acts of foreign aggression in that short time, with a sixth pending....
