But on that strategy, you should be careful to the one you are picking, weither you go for long or short (depending on your own scenario of the vote outcome). Before the beginning of November, gold and silver were quite correlated. But since the 31st October, this correlation has changed : silver tends to get stronger than gold.
Whatever the reason of that could be, here is the conclusion you should take for your precious metals' investments :
- Better use Silver for long positions
- Better use Gold for short positions
Moreover, if you guys strongly believe that this situation will remain for the next few trading sessions, you can also try to initiate an arbitrage position : buying silver AND selling gold , so that you could take profits from the difference.
