I hope you got some while it was on sale. If not and you’ve been wanting in, you probably shouldn’t wait. I’m just a simple caveman, but I think the days of gold in the 1500s and silver in the 20s are rapidly disappearing in the rearview mirror. Anyone waiting for levels even further below those recent lows to get into precious metals is probably kidding themselves.
Here’s how things stack up so far.
SP500 + 4.7%
US$ – 0.1%
While Silver had a better week than Gold (+5.4% vs 4.3%), Gold managed its biggest gain in three months as the Fed’s QE-ness seemed to separate the precious metals from other asset classes. Oil underperformed relative to the USD’s weakness (-2% on the week in DXY) managing only a 1.3% gain (and ending below $100). Silver and Gold have no managed four weeks in a row of gains as the latter has more than retraced half of the all-time high sell-off range.
