Key Ratios


Reading time: 1 – 2 minutes

Key ratios for determining value calculation as discussed in Learn How To Use A Numeraire. This should make it much easier to price assets. See the Numeraire Spreadsheet for an example of how to implement this in your own situation. I recommend you learn how to use the 200 day moving average.

Note: The table is updated automatically and sometimes does not load because of market timing or Google’s peculiarity. Also, sometimes it disappears so if it is gone then please either notify me or just come back later and I will probably have fixed it.

your chart above of the S&P 500 priced in gold appears incorrect. the green line at the bottom should represent the S&P cheap and gold expensive. it appear the lines are back to front.

How do I open the spreadsheet and plug in my own data?? I’ve tried and it says I don’t have permission. Anyone else do this?

Hi Lukeunlimited,

That is a great question. Unfortunately, Google does not allow that option. Very frustrating. I am currently working with one of my IT guys about creating a solution and even though it will cost a few thousand dollars I think it will be extremely helpful when it is finished.

Dear Trace,

Forgive me if I’m wrong but isn’t the Relative Price equal to the current price divided BY the 200 day Moving avg.? You have it described as follows…

Thnx, James


One way I use the 200 day moving average is to calculate the relative price of an asset which is the 200 day moving average divided by the current price.

James, nice catch. I have fixed it on the 200 day moving average article. People actually read what I write …. who would have though. Thanks!

I really like your inputs and ratios especially as it relates to the moving averages. I would like see more real time data on these things more on the web. Hope this site improves thanks.
