Quotes and Charts for Gold & GLD (the ETF for Gold)

April 17, 2013:   On December 3, 2012 I published a bullish case for stocks relative to gold here
Of course, there are many ways to connect stars in the sky to see figures, so I added lines that make a bullish case for stocks relative to gold. 
Here is my latest Dow:Gold chart on a log scale.  Note it clearly shows the bull market trading channel for the ratio between 1980 and 1999 then the bear market channel since the last DOW peak in 1999.  Currently, the DOW:Gold ratio is at the upper end of this bear market channel.  Will the ratio break higher or is it the start for a new leg down?  Make sure to check out DOW to Gold Ratio - Linear Scale.

DOW to Gold Ratio - Linear Scale

Here is the
DOW:Gold formula: 
The Dow-Gold Ratio is a measure of inflation and stock market sentiment. It shows how many ounces of gold it takes to buy the 30-stock Dow Jones Industrial Average.   

Note:  It is possible that with centrals banks around the globe now printing money to avoid deflation, BOTH gold and stocks could go higher.  My recommendations on how to profit are covered in my monthly investment letter.
