James Rawles recommends swapping gold for silver

The shorts must be screaming, about now: Gold shoots past record $1,800 an ounce. When I last checked, the silver-to-gold ratio was at 45.4-to-1. Again, if you have the vault space, this is a great time to ratio trade out of your 1 ounce gold coins, and into silver bullion coins. (Such as pre-1965 American "junk" silver.)


James Rawles was one of the initial bloggers who got me going with silver. He's not an economist, but a bright guy. Not sure parting with gold is a good idea, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

yeah ...

I saw this on his blog too. Definitely a logical idea, and if I had more gold I would do it, but I'm with you ... "Not sure parting with gold is a good idea."

Silver held down

I agree the ratio between the two is wide. Due to Silver being held down. If I had more Gold, it is not a bad idea. But, at this point, I want to hold my gold. Gold has to blow its top before the EE let's silver move further. Gold is where the action will be for a while, I think.

A different ratio

I swapped $50K PHYS for the same amount PPLT when the Platinum Gold Ratio on 8/8/11 (this is the second time for me and I made crazy money the first time, I believe last year.)

IF the ratio gets back to 1:1 (and I mean a true 1:1 - like platinum and gold ask prices are identical or gold ask price is even a bit more, I'm selling my remaining $350K CEF and putting it into platinum. Based on my logic and past experience, that is a pretty set and forget winner.
