Gold may outperform silver, lifting the ratio between the two metals by as much as 20 percent, according to technical analysis by Societe Generale SA.
The attached chart shows the ratio of gold to silver steadied after dropping as low as 46.6 last week, near a two- year channel support line and the lows of 2008 and 1999. The second chart shows the ratio may climb to between about 56 and 58, which are retracement levels of the decline from June that are singled out in so-called Fibonacci analysis.
“The gold-silver ratio reached an important support at 47.5/46,” said Stephanie Aymes, a cross-commodity technical analyst with Societe Generale in London. “Gold will outperform silver to 56/58.”
