Chart of the Day: Global Asset Allocations- Gold & Silver Still Afterthoughts

Today’s chart of the day examines the latest data from the World Gold Council and Deutsche Bank regarding global asset allocations across all asset classes.  11 years into their secular bull runs, gold registers at a measly 1% of global asset allocations (and this 1% is mainly paper gold such as ETF’s, unallocated accounts, and mining shares), and silver fails to even register on the chart.

When the current bull market in gold and silver finally reaches the public involvement stage, imagine the prices required to allow even a conservative 5-10% global allocation, much less match historical tops near 20-30%.
