Silver Passes $30.50

Tyler Durden's picture

Now that risk assets once again are trading purely on monetary stimulus vapors, and broad dollar weakness, we expect that precious metals will continue generating better beta than the S&P. Sure enough, this morning silver is up nearly 2%, with gold spot also just passing an all time high of 1,428.85. At this point every uptick in stocks is offset by a grater loss in purchasing power, and after various commodities opened limit up earlier, it is only a matter of time before the hot topic of mid-November: margin collapse, is back on the radar screen. But, as always, at least the wealthiest 1% of America which has the bulk of its net worth in the stock market, and recently, in gold, is making off like a bandit.
