There’s a hidden link between gold and silver — which I believe should cause silver prices to soar more than gold in the next few years.
Despite fluctuations, gold prices have historically been around 16 times the price of silver. The logic behind this is simple: Gold is roughly 16 times rarer than silver inside the Earth’s crust, according to the American Geological Institute. That’s why almost every major world government in history set the value of silver at 1/16th the price of gold.
Based on this value, if gold costs $650, silver should cost around $41. But it doesn’t. Today if silver costs only $11 an ounce. That means right now, silver is historically undervalued by close to 300 percent. Right now, gold sells at a price 50 to 60 times higher than silver.
