When silver doubles, sell half and buy free gold.
If you have a loss in physical silver or gold, sell it and lock in that loss and you can buy it back immediately.
We are getting closer and closer to the bottom in gold and silver and many are wondering once we bottom what would be a better investment moving forward, silver or gold?
To answer this question, we can look to the last bull market of 2000 to 2011 and see what the metals prices did.
There are a few important revelations I see in analyzing the growth of each metal each year. The first is that gold began to move up first. Silver was a laggard but did also start to move higher with gold in 2001.
After two years of gold leading silver higher, silver took over for gold and moved higher for 4 straight years. When the financial crisis hit silver had a negative return for the year but gold finished the year up 11.51%. The final two years of the bull run we saw silver outperform gold.
My conclusion is that silver should outperform gold once we bottom but after a couple years should lead gold higher.
