There was a simple and profitable trade from early 2013 until recently; Traders watched the behavior of silver and then executed the trade in gold because silver price behavior led gold's by about 5 to 10 days.
But those times are over. The price relationships on the gold price chart look similar to the price relationships on the silver chart.
Traders are asking if the smart trade is to now look at gold, and then execute in the silver market. If this reasoning is correct then the silver price should be poised to replicate the strong breakout we have seen with the gold price.
