the Dow Jones
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has seen significant growth over the past 20 years. Between January 1, 2003 and January 31, 2023, the DJIA has gone from a value of 7,524.06 to a value of 31,688.27, representing an increase of more than 320%.
The DJIA has experienced both upward and downward trends, including significant drops during the 2008 financial crisis and the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
The stock market is subject to a variety of factors that can influence its performance, including changes in the economy, interest rates, corporate earnings, and geopolitical events. As a result, the performance of the DJIA and other stock indices can be volatile and may fluctuate over short or long time periods.
the S&P 500
The S&P 500 has performed well over the past 20 years, with an upward trend in prices. Between January 1, 2003 and January 31, 2023, the S&P 500 has gone from a value of approximately 900 to over 4,000, representing an increase of more than 300%.
However, it is important to note that the performance of the S&P 500 has not been steady over this time period. The S&P 500 has experienced both upward and downward trends, including significant drops during the 2008 financial crisis and the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
Gold has performed well over the past 20 years, with an upward trend in prices. Between January 1, 2003 and January 31, 2023, the price of gold has increased from around $350 per ounce to over $1,900 per ounce, representing a more than 437% increase.
Gold is often considered a safe-haven asset, and its price can be influenced by a variety of factors, including changes in the global economy, geo-political risk, interest rate changes, and perceived value of the us dollar. During periods of economic uncertainty or market instability, demand for gold may increase, leading to higher prices. In fact, according to the World Gold Council, Central Banks (the ones who print the money) around the world have been buying more gold over the last year than during the previous 50 years.
That begs the question; do you want to buy what the banks are buying? Or would you rather buy what they are trying to sell you instead?
Gold is the clear winner!
