Swapping gold for silver

Swapping gold for silver is a trade always worth considering, especially when the ratio blows out as wide as it is now. Portability is one obvious reason for the reverse, as long as premiums match up in the transaction. But the main advantage to this kind of swap is that silver almost always tends to cover more ground percentage-wiser and faster when it is allowed to move in a significant way.

Within the silver demand lies important ratios. We have seen a steady increase in jewelry demand (much larger than coin) relative to industrial demand, which could have the effect of pushing the market back toward shortage very quickly.

Nevertheless, one needs to consider the following as a review:

  • Rarity
  • Volatility
  • Affordability
  • Room to run
