GLD/SLV: Sell your gold for Silver!

GLD/SLV  
GLD/SLV  
We have a nice setup here, you can take an equal dollar weight, which if trading futures , is roughly 2:1 on silver             vs gold             allocation (long/short). With stocks it's simple, I reccomend a 7% capital allocation to this trade, per side and no stop loss.
This is quite easily a 4R trade once it pans out favorably.

Good luck!

Comment: Good progress.
Comment: Looks good.
Comment: Let's watch this closely, gold might start to outperform again.
Is it too late to enter now?

Hi, yes it's late now. You can look to long silver like I suggested in my other posts.
I'm long silver against gold and the euro, and long yen against the euro (and dollar).

what do you mean by this?

This is a pair trade*. You long silver and short gold simultaneously, and calculate the position size based on volatility or matching dollar value per side.
Over time, the difference in performance, from silver over gold will produce a profit. The result of this trade, is the ratio chart you see above.
The trade won't work if you use a stop loss, and is a longer term trade.
Hope that clarifies it.

Cheers,
Ivan.
