Gold May Top $6,000, Silver $600

Silver is set for an even greater upward run than gold, with the market due to correct a distortion in its pricing of silver in relation to gold.

Gold and silver currently price at a ratio of around 45:1. However, Gmuer said declining silver output over the last 60 years—as a result of inventory depletion and mine closures—meant silver supplies currently outnumber gold by a ratio of less than 10:1, thus indicating a market correction is due.

Once this occurs, Gmuer said silver prices would settle at 6.7 percent to 10 percent of gold prices. This implies that if gold reaches $6,200 per ounce, silver could peak at $620 per ounce.
