Silver futures surged today to a new 31-year high of $43.05 per ounce. Silver is up 146% since NIA declared silver the best investment for the next decade on December 11th, 2009, at $17.40 per ounce.

Silver reached a new 30-year high today of $32.87 per ounce up 89% since NIA declared silver the best investment for the next decade on December 11th of 2009 at $17.40 per ounce!

The gold/silver ratio is now down to below 43. NIA predicted a sharp decline in the gold/silver ratio both in its top 10 predictions for 2010 at 64 and in its top 10 predictions for 2011 at 46. We believe the gold/silver ratio will decline to at least 16 within the next few years, but it could decline to as low as 10. It wouldn’t surprise us to see gold reach $5,000 per ounce in 2015 and silver reach $500 per ounce at the same time!
