Email of the day - on the copper/silver ratio:

The price of copper has been rising for some time now, while the price of silver, an important industrial metal now is languishing at the bottom of its recent trading range. Would there be any merit in examining a long-term historical chart of the ratio of copper to silver?

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which may be of interest to the collective. The outlook for both copper and silver are increasingly intertwined with that of renewable energy. Copper is required in motors, electric recharging infrastructure and wind turbines. Silver is the best-known reflective material. It’s a major component of solar panels, although there are significant efforts underway to try to substitute reliance on the metal.
