dow vs gold / chart!

zeigt schön das man sich nicht immer von den nominalen zahlen leiten lassen sollte

puts the dow into perspective. no records in sight.....

Today, the Dow edged above the 12,000 milestone for the first time. Considering the magnitude of the past bear market, it is a great achievement indeed. For some further perspective into the current rally, today's chart presents the Dow divided by the price of one ounce of gold. This results in what is referred to as the Dow / gold ratio or the cost of the Dow in ounces of gold. For example, it currently takes 20.1 ounces of gold to “buy the Dow.” This is considerably less that the 44.8 ounces back in the year 1999. When priced in gold, the current stock market rally hasn't amounted to much. In fact, the longer-term trend is actually down! Stay tuned…
