Silver vs. The Dollar

Silver vs. the Dollar Index

Long Term Silver Has Provided a Hedge Against a Declining U.S. Dollar/In Recent Years The Dollar Has Held Up Well vs. Silver

The Lowest Cost. Period.

In Silver vs. the Dow we showed the volatile nature of silver vs. the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Silver is a spike and dive commodity and its performance against the DJIA over the past few decades shows years of severe losses against the Dow and years of spectacular gains.

Silver’s performance against the dollar has been a similar story of surges and crashes. Silver does not have the same track record of gold in providing a consistent store of value.

The advantage of silver over gold is that while it crashes harder in bear markets, it soars higher in bull markets. This is due in part because the silver market is much smaller than the gold market and has a more even mix of industrial and investment demand.

The price of silver has been falling the past two years despite the supply/demand dynamic being in deficit during the same time period.
