Economic and Financial Data Visualized
The interactive dashboards below provide insights on economic and financial data.
Where applicable the dashboards have sliders to zoom in on particular dates on the charts and drop down menus to select specific data.
Gold Price Dashboard
Our gold price dashboard displays the price of gold in select currencies and the gold price as a ratio of other commodities. We have included a chart of the US dollar and the US 10-year TIPS yield due to the strong negative correlation these indicators have with the gold price. We have also included a chart of ETF holdings and the net-long position of the "specs" on COMEX.
Central Bank Gold Reserves
Our Central Bank Gold Reserves Dashboard displays central bank gold holdings. Central banks have been net buyers of gold since 2010. Approximately one fifth off all above-ground gold is held by central banks.
Silver Price Dashboard
Our Silver Price Dashboard, like our gold price dashboard, displays the silver price in select currencies and the ratio of silver to other commodities.
CPSR Rate Reset Calculator Dashboard
The Canadian Preferred Share Research dashboard provides users with a rate reset valuation calculator. This is a great tool as it allows investors to see how changing the 5-year yield or the year that the rate reset preferred share is called affects the valuation.
