Stocks Regain Nearly All Brexit Losses, But Silver Tells Another Tale

While the maintainers of the status quo managed to nearly erase all of the losses from Friday and Monday due to Brexit, there is an outlier which Money Daily has referenced in the past, and its name is silver.

Gold being the choice of elitists and very rich people worldwide, it gets most of the attention in the financial press, after stocks, of course. Silver is regarded largely as an afterthought by the all-powerful, but it has been, throughout human history, an essential element in commerce, trade and capital accumulation, and today, it outpaced every other asset class by a wide margin, closing in New York at a very favorable price of $18.695, the best closing price since September of 2014.

While other assets have been languishing or found range-bound, silver has forged ahead by a nifty 35% year-to-date.

As a monetary metal, silver has no equal in terms of affordability and value for the common man or woman. The recent rise will no doubt spur further demand and subsequent gains.

Silver's rise signals a threat to phony fiat money and the monopoly of gold as a store of value. It may also be presaging a new monetary order, one in which the general populace will not be thought of as chattel.
