Gold: Sources and Methodology
Gold Price Date comes the website called www.indexmundi.com on this page .  They source gold price information from COMEX - CME Group.

I simply use the monthly price of gold and do not assume any holding fees or expeneses.  I compare the price increase in over the designated period of time and compare it to the overall increase in inflation during the same time period to see if gold would have outperformed inflation.

For a perspective on the price of gold, below is a long term chart of Gold taken from the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank's Econoomic Research website known as FRED.  See full citation below.
