Silver vs Gold Trend

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020 Jun 09, 2020 - 03:09 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Commodities

The silver price has managed to recover from the Corona crash of 2020 with the price back within it's trading range of $17 to $20. Though contrary to the Silver bugs perma expectations for the Silver price to track the Gold price higher, that's not what usually tends to happen as the below graph illustrates,, which if you have followed my previous Silver analysis articles than you would know this is the expected behaviour of Silver, Gold's volatile and unresponsive to events cheaper cousin.


Gold price rises to new bull market highs whilst the SIlver price just manages to recover to it's trading range.

My last look at the Gold price was in Mid January (Gold Price Trend Forecast 2020) that concluded in mild first few months of the year to give way to a strong Bull run from Mid April to target a trend towards $1800.

I will cover the prospects for Gold in a separate article because it's probably better to analyse Silver before Gold, else one can fall victim to the tendency to extrapolate Gold to Silver.

Whilst my last look at silver on the 29th of January at the very beginning of the coronavirus catastrophe when most of the world thought it uniquely as a Chinese problem and then continued to remain largely deaf, dumb and blind to it's apparent consequences for nearly another 2 months !

29th Jan 2020 - Silver Price Trend Forecast 2020

Given the exponential rate of spread of the virus, then by the end of February 2020 as many as 1 million people could be infected globally, that at a 3.5% fatality rate would result in 35,000 deaths. Though the true fatality rate will likely be significantly higher, and likely the virus has already spread to most nations (including Britain) given that approx 1 million Chinese students have traveled back to foreign Universities after the New year holidays.

So a potential AI mega-trend stocks buying opportunity. Though stock sectors likely hardest hit will be travel, tourism and retail.

Silver Price Trend Forecast 2020

Initially I am expecting a very volatile trading range between a low of $16.50 to a high of $19 for the next 3 months or so, following which the Silver price 'should' respond to a Gold price rally and follow the yellow metal higher. The trends not going to be pretty but I expect Silver to trade above $20, and likely reach a peak near $21 later in the year as the forecast graph illustrates.

The bottom line is that Silver is in a 6 year long trading range of between $21 and $14. And we are all waiting for the breakout higher. For which there is a low probability of happening during 2020. However, my long-term expectations remain of being invested for a spike to $35+, which on the current price would represent a gain of 100%.

So the strategy is to invest in Silver rather than to trade Silver, to accumulate when cheap and given the gold / silver ratio of 89, Silver is still cheap today relative to Gold. Just remember Silver tends to under perform Gold during most of the precious metal bull markets, and tends to outperform towards the end of powerful bull runs as retail investors start waking up and start jumping on board, hence expect a series of spikes higher through resistance levels over the coming years.

All things considered, and given that on 29th of Jan no one could have imagined our governments would be incompetent and negligent to the extent they have been in response to the Coronavirus then the forecast has managed to prove remarkably accurate given that the forecast was for SIlver to be currently trading at about $17.4 against actual last close of $18.4. Namely for the expectation for Silver price weakness into Mid 2020 ahead of an attempt at a break above $20 later in the year, set against the perma silver bugs who have seen every up day as the start of the silver gold rush towards $50 and beyond.
