Gold hasn’t been this cheap relative to the Dow since 2008

From Chris Lowe, Analyst, Bonner & Partners:

Compared with stocks, gold is trading on the “bargain counter.”

That’s the message of today’s chart, which tracks the price of gold relative to the index level of the Dow.

When the line on the chart is rising, gold is becoming more expensive relative to the Dow. When it’s falling, the Dow is becoming more expensive in relative terms.

As you can see, the gold-to-Dow ratio hit a high in the summer of 2011 when the yellow metal hit a peak of more than $1,900 an ounce.

Since then, the ratio has been falling – meaning gold has been getting cheaper relative to the Dow.

It’s left gold at its cheapest level relative to the Dow since 2008.

Crux note: To make big gains in the gold market, you need to buy the very best miners. Louis James, Casey Research’s Senior Investment Strategist, finds these companies for a living. Before recommending a stock, Louis personally visits a company’s mines, kick its rocks, and gets to know the management on a first name basis.

Louis’ boots-on-the-ground approach works. Over the past decade, he’s helped subscribers double their money on gold stocks nearly more than 20 times. And in many cases, the gains were much higher…including gains of 411% and 390%.
