Historical Daily Gold Data 1973 thru 2009 Download
Gold still remains far below its all-time inflation-adjusted high, estimated at almost $2,500 an ounce set in 1980, an era of Cold War tension, oil shocks and hyperinflation. Gold prices have almost doubled since the Fed cut “Interest Rates” to the bone in 2008 in an attempt to shock the economy back to life after the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Gold recently has drawn support from safe-haven bids on worries over the “Euro Zone Financial Crisis“, after more talk that Greece may be set to restructure its debt and a Moody’s downgrade of Ireland.
The price of “Gold” hit record highs for the sixth session in a row as of Friday April 22, 2011 — bolstered by continuing unrest in the Middle East, fears of a sovereign debt crisis in the Euro Zone and the weak dollar.
The spot gold price hit an all-time high of $1,512.50 an ounce before easing slightly. The price of silver also rose, reaching its highest level for 31 years — the value of silver has rocketed by just over 50 per cent this year, outpacing gold, which has increased by 6 per cent over the same period.
