The Coronavirus has officially reached the “pandemic” status. It’s a scary word that means the coronavirus has crossed international boundaries. So, what does this mean for the markets?

Many of SchiffGold clients hold silver patiently waiting for a drop in the silver to gold ratio. I am very much one of these patient holders of silver.

For those who aren’t familiar, the silver to gold ratio is exactly as it sounds: the price of gold stated in ounces of silver.

Today the silver to gold ratio is trading at about 87:1. In simple terms, this means it takes 87 ounces of silver to buy one ounce of gold.

Lately, palladium has exploded in price. It’s stirred up a lot of buzz, and we’ve seen significant palladium sales (both clients buying and selling) in the last few weeks. In fact, there has been more interest in this metal than we have seen in the 10 years of SchiffGold’s history. However not too many people know much about palladium or its history.

Palladium, platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium form what is commonly called the Platinum Group Metals (PGMs). Palladium is one of the rarest metals on Earth found in 0.015 ppm (parts per million).

Platinum has caught the eye of customers lately given how relatively inexpensive it has been trading compared to other precious metals.

Even though throughout history platinum has been cheaper per ounce than gold, platinum experienced a major spike in price from roughly 2000-2008.  Since then, platinum has remained less expensive than gold, and this has caused some people to consider it a better potential speculative play versus simply buying gold.

A week ago, nearly $100 billion in short-term liquidity was added via the Federal Reserve Bank of New York offering cash in the repo market.

As a reminder, the repo market is the overnight market of repurchase agreements. This is where one sells an asset with an agreement to purchase it back at a slightly higher price the next day. In other words, very short term collateralized lending.

The current debt-based fiat monetary system creates an illusion of wealth expansion.

For example look at this 100-year price chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

In this article focuses on the gold market through the lens of technical analysis. Technical analysis is a subjective form of analysis that requires a critical eye for price patterns. The goal is to use past price data to help forecast future price movement. While the focus is on gold, these observations may be extended to the silver market given their positive correlation.

A few months ago I spoke with a woman who challenged my profession in precious metals. “Don’t you know gold can be created from lead?” she said. She then informed me that the best thing to do in the coming years was to avoid the purchase of precious metals, fiercely warning me of a coming gold collapse. “There will be a mass production of gold!” she hung up the phone before I had a chance to respond.

Today marks silver’s ninth consecutive week of higher nominal prices. Short coverings from yesterday’s rally is the reason behind silver’s higher price today. Commodity traders have been looking at the chart below and deeming silver as overbought. This is seen in the large short interest for silver, meaning traders are betting against silver’s price by shorting the market. Across silver futures, ETF’s, and OTC markets, there has been an increase in short positions.

This article is a comprehensive breakdown on SchiffGold’s most bought/sold silver products. I give my personal comments on each product and I give a brief final analysis to help buyers pinpoint the exact product that meets their goals and objectives.

Additionally, I wrote this for buyers seeking to take delivery or possession within the United States. International markets value some products differently. For clients seeking international silver holdings I recommend talking to your precious metals specialist.
