Things I have wanted to buy when I sell my coins:
I found a video where the silver investor says the average ratio in the past 23 years has been 66:1. Be sure to investigate the real ratio and its history before you buy!
UPDATED 1.28 10:30am:
YouTuber TheMicMac88 has done some ratio videos and I've communicated with him via YouTube. I asked him if he could validate my suggestion to trade on ratio targets. In his latest video he has corrected the information that I used in the video above where I said the average ratio is 50:1. He confirms that is true over the past 100 years, but that the past 24 years it has averaged 66:1. He argues that silver has been losing value to gold over time, and ratio trades should only occur at extremes such as 90:1 or 40:1, and that one should always hold onto some gold. Good advice on better data than I had just a week ago.
