The price of gold has increased approximately 4,750% since 1935 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt raised the value of gold to $35 per ounce. This is compared to today’s gold prices (June 2020) that are hovering around $1,700.Why are gold stocks down?
When gold miners produce an excess of gold relative to demand, the price will experience downward pressure due to the laws of economics. Speculators that accumulate or let go of gold in the market can create temporary imbalances that lead to rapid price changes. A permanent bull market for gold is impossible.
