Silver Seen Beating Gold as Ratio Rises to Near Historical Peaks

  • Gold price buys about 78 ounces of silver, most since August
  • Ratio has only been above that level five times since 1996

With gold trading near a two-month high, its price buys 78 ounces of silver, near the most since August. In the past two decades, the ratio has only been above that level on about five occasions, and never for more than a three months.
