Stochastics:Weak, possibly turning higher again
The run-up in the ratio of late shows silver has not been bought as a proxy for getting into gold.
The ratio dropped yesterday into the rebound in bullion prices but the ratio is drifting again today. This suggests investor sentiment is not eager to get bullish again insofar as they are not looking to get into silver, which is relatively cheap compared with gold.
We feel the ratio will need to start falling for a sustainable rally to get going in bullion prices.
If the ratio starts to head lower, we would get more bullish for bullion and expect silver to play catch-up.
