The ratio is based around the abundance of silver to gold in the crust.
There's 16X more silver than gold despite the fact there's actually more gold to invest in now than silver.
Historically silver traded at 16-1 with gold as well.
After what's happened the last 5 years with silver.... anyone who is still holding it isn't selling anytime soon.which would mean that if investors tire of it as they move to other investments, it will drop in price.
Greed didn't push these people to sell when it hit 50$ and fear didn't push them to sell when it hit 27$ this past summer.
That should tell you something about silver stackers... we aren't going anywhere. A good lot of us (myself included) remain convinced the paper price of silver is a fucking joke and we instead use it to our advantage to stack on dips.
1% of the population stacks physical metals.... that's no where near a bubble. If tomorrow that number turned to 2% what would happen? What would happen if it hit 3%? 10%? 25%? 50% 100%?
That's when those of us who haven't sold yet, out of fear or greed, would be running to sell our stacks.
