WHAT'S THE CURRENT GOLD/SILVER RATIO?

Silver - With the gold: silver ratio at 65 ($1117/$17.10/oz), silver remains a compelling buy at these levels and will likely be the surprise outperformer in 2010 as it was in 2009 (up by more than 51% YTD as per table). Silver’s industrial uses should mean that the gold/silver ratio will likely gradually regress to the average in the last 100 hundred years which is close to 40:1. If the tiny silver market was to see real funds enter it than the ration could return closer to the historical average of 15:1 as it did as recently as 1980. Silver remains less than half of its nominal record price in 1980 and very undervalued from a historical basis.

Gold now in the Second Stage of its Bull Market

Gold remains firmly within a major long-term uptrend, which is the salient fact. The short-term ups and downs are merely noise that can easily distract us from the big picture. Gold is now in the second stage of its bull market, so the volatility of the past couple of weeks is to be expected. Increasing volatility is one of the traits of a bull market’s second stage.

Russia's Central Bank to Buy More Gold

"MOSCOW, Dec 11 (Reuters) – Russia’s state repository will sell 30 tonnes of gold worth $1 billion to the central bank next week, a source at the body said on Friday, keeping the metal inside Russia after rethinking a plan to sell it on the market. Central banks worldwide are building up their gold reserves as the metal trades near record highs. Gokhran, the Russian repository, cancelled plans to sell the gold on the open market after information about the sale leaked.

"The primary aim is to make sure this gold doesn’t hit the market and influence prices," said Olga Okuneva, metals and mining analyst at Deutsche Bank in Moscow. "It’s also a way for the Russian central bank to diversify more into gold."

Russia had planned to sell between 20 and 50 tonnes on the open market to help plug a budget deficit incurred during its first recession in a decade. The economy has since shown some signs of early recovery, in line with a rebound in oil prices.

With gold trading at record highs of $1,226.10 per ounce last week, boosted by a weaker dollar, analysts said Russia would be reluctant to sell the metal abroad or to push prices down by releasing a large quantity to the market."

The picture below is a good representation on the current mindset of politicians in the U.S, the Dollar which is the ship, is destined to sink due to massive amounts of debt, and unfunded liabilities. Is universal healthcare really a good idea right now?

All this means is that Gold is destined to soar.

Is Gold Overcrowded?

"We'll know gold is overcrowded when . . .
For the long-gold trade to really become too crowded, certain events will need to occur:

* Goldman Sachs (GS, news, msgs) will have had "bus tours" to a bunch of mines, like the tours it and other companies have arranged for different industries, particularly technology.

* The public will have to be involved in a major way, and we'll see ads on Bubblevision encouraging people to buy gold instead of prodding them to sell their jewelry, as is the case these days.

* Banks will need to find a way to put money into gold -- because no modern mania has ever ended without the banks finding a way to lose money in it.

* We will most likely need to see a frenzy of mergers and acquisitions, and a leveraged buyout or two.

* Last, BusinessWeek will have to put gold on the cover, telling us how it's the wave of the future, or some variation of that theme.

I put this list together somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but over the past couple of decades, most of these events have occurred before a big mania has ended -- be it energy in the late 1970s and early '80s, stocks in the late 1990s or real estate in the middle of this decade."
