CONFIRMED: Silver Is Just Apple In Disguise

a while ago we posted this chart of SLV vs. Apple to show how similarly they moved over several months.

What’s amazing is how similarly they still trade.

Consider today: It was a huge up day, and yet both Apple and silver were lower!

Silver was far lower.
