The price of Silver has risen just under 50% since the start of 2016.
Often consider an unfashionable precious metal, due to its industrial uses, “gold’s poor cousin” is storming ahead.
As a result of the recent rise in the price of silver, the gold silver ratio has fallen slightly, from over 70:1 to 66:1 now.
Current political and economic volatility is contributing to the vertiginous rise.
What’s not so clear is why silver is increasing slightly faster than gold?
