A silver gold ratio pushing 90-1 tells us that silver is way undervalued compared to gold. It currently takes more than 89 ounces of silver to buy one ounce of gold.

Put that number into some historical perspective.

Geologists estimate that there are approximately 19 ounces of silver for every ounce of gold in the earth’s crust, with a ratio of approximately 11.2 ounces of silver to each ounce of gold that has ever been mined.

In 1792, the gold/silver price ratio was fixed by law in the United States at 15:1. France mandated a ratio of 15.5:1 in 1803. Faced with the challenges of a bi-metallic monetary system with fixed exchange rates and the aftermath of a worldwide financial crisis, the US Congress passed the Coinage Act of 1873. Following the lead of other Western nations, including England, Portugal, Canada, and Germany, this act formally demonetized silver and established a gold standard for the United States.

With silver playing a smaller role as a monetary metal, the silver-gold ratio gradually spread. The modern average over the last century is around 40:1.

Silver is much more volatile than gold due to its industrial role, but at its core, it is still a monetary metal and it tends to track relatively consistently with gold over time. When gold goes up, it almost always takes silver with it.

As Peter Schiff pointed out last week, bond markets are flashing recession. But bond-buyers are making the wrong bet.

Now, the market is correct. We are going into recession and the Fed is going to respond to this recession the same way it responds to all recessions that it causes, and that is by doing more of what caused it, which is slashing interest rates back to zero. But what the markets, I think, have got wrong is the reaction. Because the recession we’re going to get this time is going to be stagflation. We are not going to have stable prices or a drop in the official inflation rate. Inflation is going to rise. And that means bond prices are going to fall. And that is going to exacerbate the severity of the next recession.”

If Peter is right, you are going to want to be holding precious metals. Gold and silver have historically provided a hedge against inflation and preserved wealth during economic crises.

And with silver on sale, this is the perfect time to add silver to your portfolio.

The fundamental supply and demand dynamics also look good for silver right now. Silver demand was up 4% and hit a three-year high in 2018, according to the latest report by the Silver Institute. Meanwhile, silver mine production fell for the third straight year, dropping 2% in 2018 to 855.7 million ounces. And it appears lagging mine production has continued into this year. The world’s largest primary silver producer reported a plunge in output in Q1 2019.

Analysts also project industrial demand for the white metal will continue to increase. According to the Silver Institute, continued investment in solar photovoltaic energy, should further boost global industrial demand for silver over the next decade and beyond. The institute projects roughly 820 million ounces of silver will be utilized by global solar energy applications alone through 2030. A recent study showed a “causal relationship” between the demand for solar energy and the price of silver.

Given the supply and demand dynamics, along with the prospects of a weakening dollar when the recession hits, it seems likely that gap will close.

Silver has hit an all-time high of $49 per ounce twice – in January 1980 and then again in April 2011. If you adjust that $49 high for inflation, you’re looking at a price of around $150 per ounce. In other words, silver has a long way to run up. As one analyst put it, “With the long-term downside potential of silver very low versus its current valuation, the risk/reward is one of the best investments on the planet.”
