The best time to buy gold is when that ratio is at it's peak. In hindsight, we know that was 1999-2000 when it was above 40/1. The peaks in the ratio are getting higher. If the dips get lower, it could go below one.
Translation: the trend points at gold eventually trading at a price higher than the dow which is above 13,000 today. It will likely be lower if gold matches or exceeds it, but who knows?
