- However, for now, silver is still stuck in an overall sideways zone.
Having isolated Silver (XAGUSD:CUR), Gold (XAUUSD:CUR), and Bitcoin (BTC-USD) as the most reliable wealth preservation vehicles for a looming hyperinflation scenario, we consistently look for each of these three instruments' advantages and disadvantages over their counterparties. One abnormality stands out, which lets us to believe that Silver might be outperforming Gold and providing for extra bang for your buck.
We are not after maximizing profits when talking about wealth preservation where risk is the dominant factor of focus. Nevertheless, it might be fundamental reasons why Silver is gaining this momentum for this newly found abnormality in relative strength behavior that warrants stacking up on more physical holdings. And no one will be disappointed if wealth isn't just preserved and stored properly but also see some potential massive gains as well.

If you follow the vertical lines along with over the last fifty years on the monthly chart above with the comparison of highs and lows in the Silver markets compared to the Gold market, you will find great alignment.

Silver and Gold in US-Dollar, Weekly Chart, Silver gaining momentum over Gold:
Zooming in on last year's Gold and Silver behavior on a weekly percentage chart shows a divergence in this comparison of the precious metals. While highs and lows from last year's March to August were still in unison, something changed beginning in November 2020. Silver is clearly showing strength over Gold.
The fundamental reasons supporting this strength can only be speculated on. The fact is that Silver is in high demand for solar cells, 5G cellular technology, electric vehicles, Semi-conductors, photography, anti-bacterial, and medicines, to only name a few.

Let us now zoom further in on the daily chart of Silver over the last seven months. One can see that direction is also evident in the recent period of an overall sideways zone for Silver. A string of higher lows made us aggressively take entries within the last eight trading sessions. We use a Quad exit strategy and, as such, took partial profits already to eliminate risk. All trade entries and exits were posted in real-time in our free Telegram channel. The last bottom on Silver is now confirmed.

Silver leading Gold:
It is hard to say why Silver (XAGUSD:CUR) is coming so much to the forefront. Two facts are very attractive in our mind. One is divisibility. A Gold coin, if advancing vastly, will be a hard item to barter with since the smallest units are still very expensive. Gold as such is impracticable for making smaller size purchases. Silver is priced much lower. Secondly, Gold has a history of confiscation from private hands in turmoiled times. The likelihood of Silver being declared illegal is much lower due to its various daily applications. Should, as we expect, Silver outperform Gold in this bull market, you might just find yourself in a scenario of "have your cake and eat it too."
