Gold Could Go to $7,275! Here's Why

With gold trading Thursday (August 18) at close to $1835/oz, many are asking if gold is in a bubble. While gold may be expensive relative to its price last year, how does it compare with that of the S&P 500 -and, as such, how much higher might we expect gold to go]? Words: 346

The chart below compares the S&P 500 to gold going back to January 1971. In essence, this ratio represents the inflation-adjusted value of the S&P 500. Higher numbers represent a higher relative value for the S&P 500. Lower numbers indicate a higher relative value for gold.

Throughout this comparison, the lowest S&P 500-to-gold ratio was 0.1566 back in 1981. Using this as a peak relative value for gold, we can analyze today’s gold price.


Today’s S&P 500-to-gold ratio has not yet fallen to its historical low of 0.1566. To reach historical lows set in 1981, the S&P 500 would either need to fall to 290, gold would need to rise to $7275/oz or some combination of the two would have to occur.
