Gold/Silver ratio -- And Unforseen Circumstances

by gscflash

I read a great comment on here giving great fundamentals on gold/silver ratio becoming to 5:1. I

respect the whole article BUT my take is: his guess & my
guess, is just AS GOOD as the $million dollar Paid
Adviser/Economist ! "I believe" the ratio probably will
return to around the historical average of 16:1. There are things I don't see in all these sites & from the
"Pros(?)". I've watched & studied & invested in both metals for 30 years, & as I've seen gold climb,we've
invented & replaced gold in many devices with other
alternatives...etc. Although I AM very bullish on Silver, I wouldn't throw Gold under the bus ! As Silver
prices do & will increase, we WILL find "some replacements" etc..! One quick example- they predict
Silver will be guaranteed 5 yrs large usage in solar panels, which is all the craze worldwide (especially
after the Japanese Nuke disaster). Approx 2/3 per oz of
Silver is used per panel. The reason they say 5yrs +/-
is they already know how to reduce or replace the Silver in panels, BUT FOR NOW it isn't cost affective. Now take this idea(s) to other devices etc. Gold also will be used for collateral,a major "Fear factor" scenario,
& use in paying large (& hidden bills such as countries
buying oil from Iran etc), & possibly as a Fractional
backing for currency someday (I personally think China
"IS" mulling that over & could pull it off !). I am not
an "ALL BULL" for gold, But I think the realty is that
Gold & Silver will have huge roles in future ! I myself
believe Silver IS a better investment to make money & my
Insurance, but I will invest in both! I don't think
Guessing at future ratios is helpful/useful. Thanx & Good Fortune To All.

"Well it helps confirm my conviction that silver is far better metal to invest in than gold or any of the other metals because of its monetary, medical, and industrial uses. So it really has a realistic unrecognized potential that I feel the gold bugs overlook. I read and research a lot of different sources and you help me stay balanced in my approach. Thanks for the course and keep up the good work!"
