Gold:Platinum Ratio Suggests Much Higher Gold Prices Are Coming Soon

Source:

"The gold:platinum ratio supports significantly higher gold prices over the coming months."

There is an interesting pattern developing on the gold:platinum ratio. This pattern is similar to a previous pattern on the silver chart. Below is a graphic that features the gold:platinum ratio (top), as well as the silver chart (bottom) (charts courtesy of stockcharts.com):

The graphic is self-explanatory, and indicates that the gold:platinum ratio is in a position similar to where silver was at the end of January 2011. If the ratio was to continue to follow the silver pattern, then we could have gold being 1.7 times the value of platinum in this year. This is consistent with my expectation of a significantly higher "real" gold price (relative to stocks and most commodities).

Note that it is more probable that an increase in the gold:platinum ratio would mean higher nominal gold prices, instead of lower gold prices. This is due to the fact that the recent decline in the ratio corresponds more with the correction in the gold price, since September of last year.

So, the gold:platinum ratio also supports significantly higher gold prices over the coming months.
