I need some advice and or encouragement.
Title says it all. Silver seems stuck in the doldrums. We keep stacking it because we can't afford to stack anymore gold. But our ratio is getting all out of alignment.
Two depressing things about this:
1) We averaged into our silver too high during the first part of this year, made the bulk of our purchases > $36.50. It's taking forever to average it back down.
2) I am no longer sure I believe silver will ever be "money". Particularly when you look at the recent few months, you can see the disconnect between gold and silver with gold moving higher and silver stagnating along with other commodities.
Should we swap a good portion of our silver into gold even though the ratio is not good? Should we just hold onto it in a blind hope that someday everything will work out and the ratio will improve? We don't want to be in a position where three years from now gold is $10k/oz and silver is $50/oz and some joker we're trying to pay says to us, "Oh, you were 85% invested in silver? Ooops".
What to do?
