Is gold technically stronger than silver?
''Just for the heck of it, let's check on the gold/silver ratio. Silver, after months of underperforming gold, has had a nice run lately, taking the ratio from 67 oz. of silver for one oz. of gold, to only 57:1 57 to 1 is an interesting ratio. First, because it's about the average gold/silver ratio in recent years. Second, because based on this chart's trendline and previous support/resistance areas, it's right about where you'd expect silver to start running out of steam. On the other hand, if the ratio hits 56:1, that would hint at further strength in silver compared to gold. All in all - not a crystal-clear picture here; gold or silver? Pick 'em, as they say in betting.''
