Gold/Silver Ratio

"I like to see good relative strength in the ratio like this during a correction."

The precious metals began a correction last week, which was fueled by gold's inability to penetrate resistance above $1,000 after several determined attempts.

I am encouraged by the relative performance of the gold/silver ratio. Though the ratio has bounced, which is to be expected in any correction, my recommended stop-out point has not been hit. I like to see good relative strength in the ratio like this during a correction.

The ratio closed on Friday, September 25, 2009 at 61.7. If it remains below 62.2 (basis the daily closing price of gold and silver on the New York Comex), I would then expect this current correction in the precious metals to be short-lived.



Let's watch the ratio for a day or two, or perhaps through month-end. Its performance during this period will I expect signal whether the correction in the precious metals is ending.
