The historical relationship between gold and silver is somewhere right around 15:1. Last year silver was down as much as 70:1. As of today we are closer to 40:1.
The artificial suppression of the silver price may be coming to an end.
Last July, silver was in the high $18 range. Today it is bringing $31.70. What changed? Well, the Fed printed a shitload of money in the meantime. What did you expect to happen to commodity prices.
Silver and gold are only the most popular examples of the loss of value of the dollar, but look around you at oil, grain, beef, pork, etc.... all commodities are kicking the dollar's ass.
