• Hedgeye Investing Summit: A Special HedgeyeTV Webcast Event

    The sharpest minds in investing discuss the most important market and economic developments and their investing implications. Join Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough and our special guests live from October 14-16.

On a recent edition of The Macro Show, a subscriber asked CEO Keith McCullough why there’s been a growing divergence between gold and silver prices.

While these precious metals may seem similar on a surface level, McCullough explains that there are some important distinctions. Investors should be wary in lumping them together.

“Gold is more tied to the [U.S.] dollar with an inverse correlation. Silver doesn’t have that,” McCullough explains in the clip above.

“Gold went bananas because the dollar came down. Quad 4 [growth and inflation slowing] loves gold, and it does not love silver.”
