The phrase “every cloud has a silver lining” has been around since at least the 1600s. It means that everything bad (the cloud) has something good (silver) that comes out of it.

Silver has had a positive connotation throughout modern history. In fact, did you know the world had a silver standard long before it had a gold standard?

Our history with silver goes back a long way. It’s always been highly thought of and highly sought after.

Well, I believe that, lately, it’s becoming even more highly sought after than gold.

How so?

You’ve often heard of the gold-to-silver ratio, but I want to flip it around for a moment. It’s easier to see what silver is doing right now by looking at the silver-to-gold ratio on the three-year chart below.

Poor Man’s Gold Is Shining Once Again

Back in August, silver began to take the lead over gold. This is typical when a quantitative easing program is in full effect, since investors are more comfortable owning this volatile metal when they feel that the financial markets will be propped up.

And, as you can see from the last time it began to take the lead back around September 2010, it took off and didn’t look back for the next eight months.

Silver’s lead over gold is still in the early stages right now. Silver will likely outpace gold on a percentage basis for many more months to come.

Have a nice day!
