Silver outshines gold

In a previous article I showed that a modified Coppock indicator could identify good investment periods for gold. This indicator, with some changes to its parameters, can also be used for silver. The long-time average annual return from silver based on the signals from this indicator exceeded those from gold by a considerable margin, 19.7% for silver versus 14.9% for gold. At the end of April 2011 the model signaled to sell silver and since then it has not produced a buy signal. Note that the indicator has formed a trough now which usually precedes a buy signal.

A complete description of the model has been published in Advisor Perspectives: Silver – Better Than Gold: A Modified Coppock Indicator for Silver

    Hello Georg;
    I have just registered on the site as per your e-mail and the site looks great. I will certainly be visiting it frequently and appreciate it that you make this information accessible without asking payment for it at this stage.
    I was looking at the Coppock Indicator for gold and silver, and was wondering if it is also a good indicator for platinum? Is such information available, or do you have intentions of looking at platinum as well? Thanks again and stay well. Luc.

      We have a modified Coppock indicator for Platinum. CAGR for continuous investment from July 1971 to February 2013 is 6.8%. With Coppock and interest when not in Platinum, CAGR is 15.1%. This is not as good a return as from Silver or Gold.

    and I was wondering if it is also a good indicator for Palladium? Is such information available, or do you have intentions of looking at Palladium as well? Thanks again and stay well.

      We don’t have a data series for palladium. If we can find one then we can also produce a modified Coppock for palladium.
