Interesting data here this morning from David Rosenberg at Gluskin Sheff. If history is any guide the equity markets won’t make a secular low until the Dow/gold ratio closes further. Mr. Rosenberg notes:
“That is what the chart below displays … and: (i) if this ratio ends up retesting the two fundamental lows that it has achieved in the past; and, (ii) if we are correct in our assertion that gold goes to $3,000/oz, then what we would be talking about here is a Dow 5,000 trough at some point down the road.”
