# DOW / GOLD Ratio

863 views
This indicator shows the ratio between the DJIA and the price of gold . When the ratio is below 5 it is generally accepted that a rotation from commodities to equities should be investigated. When the ratio is above 30 it is, likewise, advised to consider rotating from equities to commodities .

This is a modest improvement of the script to mark the key thresholds where equities/ commodities holdings rotations could be prudent. I’m sure I’ll be submitting a number of instances of these scripts as I learn the syntax and features while developing them.
