Say you had 40 oz of Gold.... you wanted to trade it in and get...say 4 monster boxes of Silver Maples......Long term, do you think it is better to stay with the gold or go with the Maples? Basically...What would YOU do????

If I had 40 oz of gold and no silver at all, I'd look to balance the two holdings.

Silver, at least in the near term, is expected to outperform gold. So you def. want to get in. But to sell all of your gold? Not for me.

I'd keep 15-20 oz of gold (at least), and move the rest to (physical) silver.

Just remember that silver has the greater "beta", which means its downside is far greater in the event of a sell-off.

Sold 4 ozs gold loaded up on silver before $22. I would sell 10 ozs gold and load up on silver right now.

100% trade for silver, wait until GSR drops to something like 25:1 then trade back if you want.

I sold all my gold bullion about 6 months ago, have some gold stocks/mining company still but 100% in silver bullion for physical possession ATM.

50/50 for me playing both side of the fence. Watching the GSR carefully as well as the Dow Ratio, which shows gold should be around $2,800 using 4:1 Gold\Dow. May think about swapping for gold but not sure of my "sweet spot" yet. I was originally thinking 40:1 but now with such fast movement hmm I'm hesitant to tweak my position. Would love to see some experienced traders weigh in on this topic a bit more. :D

If you had 40 oz of gold and no silver, I'd quickly come to the conclusion that your PM program was poorly thought out.

Depends on when he purchased those 40oz. of gold!

In 1 year gold appreciated 27% while silver appreciated 50%. If all my holding where silver, I would have doubled my profits. However, a year ago I thought of silver as cheap and non profitable. I was wrong.

I own both, but ounce for ounce which one made more $ in a years time?

Given that was the only choice I would go with silver over gold. I doubt I would go with eagles though.

Should have thought about that a while ago when you could have got 80+ oz silver for that oz of gold.

I just did that.
I had 20 ounces gold in Kitco pool, saw that silver was outperforming, and switch it up around 22.50. Silver has now made 25% on that..whereas gold is about 8%.

I still hold ALL my physical gold and silver and am not about to change either for anything.. but my pool money is all silver for the moment.
