About This Data

This data includes daily data of gold rates from 1st Jan 1985 to 11th Feb 2022. This data was collected from gold.org and then cleaned, becoming publically available here. With this information, one can have a much better understanding on what is going on in the gold market. We can use this data with other information to understand what events may cause the price of gold to increase or decrease. We can also look at the other currencies/prices to determine the effect of other countries on the gold market. Lastly, we can analyze the rises and falls in price to determine an optimal time to purchase.

Things to try in the data set:

Group Data

Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!

Filter Data

Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.

Search Data

Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.

Key Insights

Overview

“Although the price of gold can be volatile in the short term, it has always maintained its value over the long term. Through the years, it has served as a hedge against inflation and the erosion of major currencies, and thus is an investment well worth considering”(source). 


With rising inflation concerns, gold is looking a lot more viable as an investment choice. Not only is it pretty to look at, but it could hold its value better than, say, a mutual fund. This is by no means financial advice, but we think it could be informative to take a look at the performance of this mysterious asset, so we have provided you all with this wonderful dataset. The data ranges from 1985 to present.
