From Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst, Casey Research:
Most precious-metals investors know silver is more volatile than gold. But do they know just how big that difference really is?
We thought it would be interesting to measure how much greater silver's daily moves are – both in gains and declines – than gold.
We documented the daily price movements for both metals, and then calculated the difference using absolute values. To interpret the charts below, you need to know that:
|•||Values above zero represent days when silver had a greater percentage move than gold, as depicted in gray.|
|•||Values below zero are days when gold moved more than silver, as depicted in orange.|
|•||The values don't tell us the direction of price movements, only how much they differed between each other on any given day.|
|•||The darker horizontal lines represent the moving average of the price differences for each metal.|
With that in mind, here are the differences...
Crux Note: If you're bullish on silver, you may be interested in a new opportunity that could return 100% more than ordinary silver over the next few years. In fact, it has the potential to generate huge gains even if the price of silver doesn't go up another penny. Click here for the details.
