In “Silver vs. the Dollar” we noted that silver has out performed the dollar over the last five, ten twenty and thirty year periods and has under performed the dollar the past six months and two years.

Gold, like silver, has also outperformed the dollar over the last five, ten, twenty and thirty year periods but by a wider margin. Gold has underperformed the dollar over the past six months and two years.

Gold is a more consistent performer than silver. In bear markets gold does not fall as hard as silver but also does not rise as sharply in bull markets. This is due, in part, because the silver market is much smaller than the gold market and existing stocks of gold can be used to smooth out any excess demand requirements. A far greater percentage of silver’s demand is satisfied from current mining production.

Currently in late 2014, silver is crashing harder than gold. The gold/silver ratio is well over 70:1.
