Over the last few days we have looked at a few of the tailwinds for gold looking forward from the In Gold We Trust preview.  Today we pass on their assessment of the status quo for gold; where we are at now.

The table below shows gold’s performance over this century in a host of different currencies.  As they say:

“The average annual performance from 2001 to 2019 has been +9.1%. During this period gold has outperformed practically every other asset class, and in particular every currency, despite intermittent, sometimes substantial corrections.”

Combined with the ultimate contrarian indicator….

And finally, measured against the S&P500, gold is looking poised for good things:

“We consider the bull market in equities as the biggest opportunity cost for gold. Comparing the gold price to S&P 500 development, we can see that the relative performance of gold vs. the S&P 500 is bottoming.  After seven years of underperformance of gold vis-à-vis the broad equity market, the tables might soon be turning in favour of gold.”
