Sliding Silver Price Sends Scary Signal

London (Mar 25) Gold is priced 82 times higher than silver, the highest such discrepancy in two years and seen as a negative economic indicator

Investors have soured on silver to start 2018, after prices rose over the last two years—a possible warning signal to the broader market.

Silver futures have fallen 3.1% this year, trailing a 3.3% gain in gold. That’s after bullion rose 14% last year, double silver’s 7% advance.

The divergence between the two means prices for gold are 82 times those of silver, which is 27% more than the 10-year average and the highest level in two years, data analyzed by WSJ Market Data Group show.
