    I think the Gold-Platinum ratio is at an even more historically rare level than the Gold-Silver ratio is. But both have been like this for awhile now.

    The last time the GS ratio was nearly this high was near the end of of 2008.

    Looking at the charts, it's interesting to note, when the ratio dropped to it's lowest on the 28th of April 2011, silver was at $48.48.

    Edit:
    Also notice in the chart in post #6, what the USDI and the GS ratio was in April of 2011 when silver was at $48.48

    Maybe because platinum is an industrial metal used as a catalyst while gold is more of a jewelry metal?

    The platinum gets used up while the gold is still around.

    Interesting Indicators

    I think it's interesting to see how the Gold/Silver ratio compares with the United States Dollar Index too.
