Thread to explore the mystery of days, like today, when gold and silver trade in synchronized fashion. The charts are shown as animated gifs of the same chart captured at the same time for both gold and silver to show the synchronization.

The first example, from June 5, shows non-synchronized trades.

The second example, from June 19, shows synchronized trades.

The second example, from doay, shows synchronized trades.

Why it matters: In our theory of the small trade within the big trade, funds are moving the prices of silver and gold. It appears that many have gold/silver trades that are made together, very likely correlated to interest rates. If that's true, then a surprise Fed rate hike, were one to occur, will likely take gold and silver down hard together. What is odd is that the synchronization is not consistent. Thoughts?
