Gold vs. the S&P 500

In 1980, gold was going for more than 7.5 times the S&P 500. To hit that level today, gold would need to be close to $10,000 per ounce.

By July 1999, the ratio had fallen to less than 0.18, which in today’s terms would place gold at $230 an ounce. The ratio then rebounded to 1.37 in March 2009. Since then, gold and the S&P 500 have followed each fairly closely. Since last May, gold has held the upper hand but now the two are starting to get much closer.

Is a crossing in the works?
