Custom Charts


Don't make another BUY or SELL decision without checking the value and trend of your target security in GOLD!

For a limited time, custom charts are available for any stock or security for which I have historical data.  This should include any company on the NYSE, AMEX, NASDAQ, CME, NYBOT, OTC Bulliten Board and many foreign exchanges, as well as many market averages.  These charts will show the value of the security in grams of gold over long term (ten years, if data is available) and short term (one year) periods.  The same tools I use to create the charts on the website will be used to create your custom charts, and the charts will be emailed to you in PDF format. 

Price is $9.95 per security… but newsletter subscribers get one free! 

If you're already a subscriber, this is my way of saying "Thanks!".  If you're not yet a subscriber, sign up today — it's totally free, you can unsubscribe anytime you like, and one free custom chart worth $9.95 is free for the asking.  There will be lots of other goodies coming for subscribers, too, so don't wait!  Just fill in your name and email address in the boxes in the upper right corner of this page, and let's get started!

To order, send an email with the security names and symbols to and you will receive a PayPal invoice by email for the total price of your custom chart package.  When payment is received, your charts will be generated and sent to you as soon as possible, usually within 48 hours.

If you include the purchase date and price you paid for the security (and for closed positions, the date of sale and sale price) I'll add the gold gram values of your purchase (and sale) so you can see how your investment really performed.

Make sure your investments are growing in true value, not just in evaporating dollar value.  Price them in GOLD!

Do you have a chart showing the value of gold vs the Canadian dollar? As my investments in gold and gold stocks and precious metal funds are in Canadian dollars I would like to eliminate the decreasing value of the U.S. $ Thanks Bill

I once heard that a semester of college in 1920 cost the same number of gold oz as it would in 1990. Any truth to that?

I guess you could use the older colleges like Wm and Mary or another old state school.

Thank you so much for this site! It's an invaluable tool for pointing out the effects of dollar devaluation on US standard of living over the past 40 yrs.

A real public service (if you have the guts…)

Track Minimum Wage in the years it has existed. This will show just how bad a depression we're currently experiencing. I'll bet it's at least as bad as the Great Depression, and getting worse by the day, while Uncle Sam continues to print worthless currency, exacerbating the problem.

How does the total cost of an MBA program at a top school stack up in gold?

Do you have the Brent version for the oil in gold chart please?

Thank you

How about a chart that shows historic average home rental prices in gold? It would be interesting to see if one could figure out which is the better option in the context of the current situation.

I would like to see what the US disposable income chart would look like if you removed the top and bottom 1% earners(by wage). Is that possible with the BLS data you have?

Annual Federal Loans, Annual Debt Increases and Annual Taxation per capita would be interesting.

Here I found some statistics, I'm not sure how they got them since I'm unsure how to browse those source pages. They do mention were they got them down below on every link: + +, you could make a graph with different colors stacking each other. , two graphs going side by side as a comparison

You might have already made one of these, like the federal debt which is very interesting (debt increase during Reagan), I hope they can give you some extra details though. Cheers, William.

Do you have a US compounded dollar chart vs gold.
ie. Say I purchased $1 of gold in 1900 and invested $1 in an interest bearing cash account that compunded, what would their relationship look like?
(eg. at 5% cash rate $1 is worth $114 in 100 years, where gold would be around $87)

It was good to find this website (which I reached through Zero Hedge) because it actually gives me answers to many questions I have asked myself but been unable to find credible answers to.

Here and there one can read about the increasing cost of extracting gold because the large and "easy"-to-get-to deposits are being exhausted. I assume that productivity is not keeping up with diminishing returns, and that wage pressures in developing countries have also had their effects.

If we knew the average extraction cost per kilo of gold priced in gold would that not indicate some realistic sort of minimum support level for gold – if converted into a currency – and perhaps even give us a trend for future support levels and thereby prices, and even tell us when we are in bubble territory?

Niklas @ 7:59 am #

Yes, the data collection is the stumbling block here, isn't it.

I am not in any way in the financial business, and my knowledge of it is extremely limited. This is just an idea that on an intuitive level feels right. Judging from your response it seems as if you may agree with me.

Would an analysis into yearly reports of every company in the HUI index give us a good indication?

Would you be able to add a chart showing the price of Berkshire Hathaway stock priced in gold. Given Warren Buffet's views on gold as a measure/store of value, it would be interesting to see how his stock has performed when measured in gold. Thank you.

As a holder of Gold I find your charts fascinating! I came across a reference to your site at GATA.
As an Englishman living in France I obviously would love charts orientated to UK Pound and Euro plus the FTSE. Prices of cars and food also.

You must get requests all the time from people like me who want more of your valuable time.
Keep up the good work!

Are these copper charts the closest proxy to iron ore priced in gold? What peaked my interest is that there are a few stories around this week about the collapse of iron ore prices in USD.

Thanks, this makes a lot of sense. This week's iron ore stories at and probably wouldn't have been written if they were looking at this iron ore priced in gold chart.

As a counter to the above fear-inducing stories, there's this news:

Sir Charles – This may be more challenging than the other ratios, but would it be possible to do a Gold to Derivatives Ratio? Here are some background facts and places to look at:
2) This site gives the worldwide total amount of derivatives in 2009, a bit dated, but interesting to look at compared to Gold.

Hello Mr Charles!

Firstly I would like to say this site in wonderful! It gives a whole new way of looking at things!

I was wondering if it would be possible to have the PPI (Producers Price Index) in gold terms?

Thank you!

Thank you for a great site!

Considering platinum and palladium are here, surprised that rhodium is not, especially given what's happening with its fiat price.

Is there no good long term price data source for rhodium?

It would be interesting to see fine wine pricing in gold. There are pretty exact records of how wine traded in past times. Best source to my knowledge is LIVEX.

Thank you for putting this website together! It truly shows the how almost every aspect of our lives have changed (for the worse) when commodities, wages, and various assets are priced in gold.

Many apologies for woefully slow reply. The Office of National Statistics has lots of data on stuff like wages. Here for example

I assume the following exists somewhere regarding central banks’ M2 or M3 and their holdings of gold.

First, in aggregate
A is the total of all central banks’ M2/M3 in USD, and
B is the number of ounces of gold of all central banks.
C = A/B

Second, the above by central bank (or economy)
A’ is the total of each central banks’ M2/M3 in USD, and
B’ is the number of ounces of gold of each central banks.
C’ = A’/B’

This might provide an indication of how over valued fiat currencies might be, if we returned to a gold standard. Hypothetically.

I've followed this site since 2009, its a great reality check to compare values over time. Can you update the US household net worth chart?
I'm curious how the last 10 years have fared.

Hello – I love the information. Is there any chance you might update Food prices in gold to come current to 2023 looks like last update was circa 2019. Thank you.
