This page features a live, interactive gold price chart. The current price of gold can be viewed by the ounce, gram or kilo. You can also look at numerous timeframes from 10 minute bars to charts that depict the last 30 years of price action.

Why Use Gold Price Charts?

Gold price charts can be useful in several ways. For those looking to actively trade gold, rather than invest for the long-term, price charts are an absolute necessity. Short-term traders or investors may examine price data on shorter timeframes, looking for areas of support to buy at and areas of resistance to sell at. Short-term traders or investors may also use charts to try to identify trends in the gold price in order to try to take advantage of them.

Long-term investors can also make good use of gold price charts. A long-term gold buyer may not be interested in a 10 minute or hourly timeframe, but rather longer timeframes such as daily, weekly, monthly or yearly charts. Like the short-term trader, long term gold investors may use charts to try to identify trends in the price of gold, or they may try to spot potential areas of price support to buy at.

Gold investors come in all shapes and sizes, from the small, retail investor to large commercial buyers and central banks. This makes the ability to view the price of gold on a chart in varying weights important. An individual investor may typically buy one gram gold bars, for example, so being able to view the price of gold on a chart in grams makes it easier to determine price levels at which he or she may be interested in buying. Central banks or governments, on the other hand, may buy massive amounts of fold and therefore would likely look at one ounce and one kilogram gold bars. Whichever weight the potential buy is interested in, gold price charts can show prices in that particular weight.

Gold/Silver Ratio

In addition to just examining gold price charts, you can also use the gold/silver ratio price chart. The gold/silver ratio is simply the amount of silver required to buy a single ounce of gold. For example, if gold is at $1200 per ounce and silver is at $15 per ounce, the ratio would be calculated as $1200/$15 = 80. This means it would take 80 ounces of silver to buy a single ounce of gold.

Charts of this ratio may potentially be useful, as some use the ratio for buying signals. For example, if the ratio is at 80, some might consider silver relatively less expensive than gold and will buy silver. If the ratio was considerably lower, like 40, some may consider gold relatively less expensive and buy gold rather than silver.

The price of gold is constantly moving, as the metal is traded all over the globe. When it is nighttime in the U.S., for example, gold prices could be on the move during active trading in Asian markets. Gold price charts depict all of gold’s activity, and can assist investors in buying or selling decisions.

In addition to trends and potential areas of support and resistance, gold price charts may also allow traders and investors to spot specific patterns in the gold market. Some of the most widely used technical trading patterns include the cup and handle, head and shoulders, wedges, triangles and flags. Charts that also depict each bar’s high, low, open and closing price may also provide traders and investors another tool for market analysis. A candlestick chart, for example, can show traders and investors where price action opened and closed for that timeframe as well as the specified timeframes high and low price. A large candle on a monthly chart that opened near the bottom of the price range but closed near the top, for example, could be indicative of buyers overpowering sellers. Such a conclusion could, therefore, potentially be indicative of additional gains in price.

If you are a long-term gold investor, you may want to focus on longer-term price charts using weekly, monthly or even yearly timeframes. Using charts definitely does not guarantee profits, but it may be very helpful in buying at price levels that could prove to be excellent lo ng-term values.

Introduction

The popularity of natural bodybuilding is increasing rapidly. In the United States, over 200 amateur natural (drug tested) bodybuilding contests occurred during 2013 and the number of contests is expected to increase in 2014 [1]. Preparation for bodybuilding competition involves drastic reductions in body fat while maintaining muscle mass. This is typically achieved through a decreased caloric intake, intense strength training, and increased cardiovascular exercise. Competitors partake in numerous dietary and supplementation strategies to prepare for a contest. Some have a strong scientific basis however, many do not. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to review the scientific literature on topics relevant to nutrition and supplementation for bodybuilding competition preparation. Dietary modifications during the last week to enhance muscle definition and fullness (peaking) and psychosocial issues will also be covered. Ultimately, evidence-based recommendations will be made for nutrition, supplementation, and “peak week” strategies for natural bodybuilders. As a final note, this paper does not cover training recommendations for natural bodybuilding and the training methodology used will interact with and modify the effects of any nutritional approach.

OVER 2 BILLION WILL DIE!

The question is not, “Is there going to be a World War III?” It is in your Bible. There is not a one tenth of one percent chance that it is not going to happen. Another world war is coming, and it will be the biggest world war ever. According to the Bible, one out of three people on the earth will die in this war of all wars! The prophecy is found in Revelation chapter nine, verse 15: “And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”

The “third part of men” would be over two billion people! Other translations read “one-third of the human race”, “one-third of all the people on earth”, “one-third of humanity”. They all say the same thing. A war is just ahead that will wipe out over two billion human beings!

The War of All Wars

Prior to the 20th Century, there had never been a war with one million fatalities. Then came World War I in 1914, with 8.2 million dead. They called it “The Great War.” With the founding of the League of Nations, we had hoped that this type of carnage would never happen again. Twenty years later, 52 million people died in World War II. As if something had come unhinged in the human soul, we cried out, “How can we ever stop this?” With the founding of the United Nations we had hoped that the solution to world peace was at hand. I have the dreadful assignment of telling you, it is not fixed. There is another war coming. There will neither be 8 million dead nor 52 million dead. This war that is coming will kill 2.2 billion, forty times World War II. It will be the worst war ever.

I can’t tell you exactly when this is going to happen, but the Bible tells us where World War III will originate. The “Sixth Trumpet” prophecy is found in Revelation 9:14-15:

Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

These angels were bound in the Euphrates River, which flows through Turkey, Syria, and Iraq, and empties into the Persian Gulf. War has been raging up and down the Euphrates River since 2003 when the U.S. invaded Iraq. When they are loosed, these evil angels will carry out their assignment to kill one-third of mankind.

Out of the chaos and destruction, a strong leader will rise to promise peace and security. The Antichrist will step onto the world scene at just the right moment. He will provide firm direction but he will also demand absolute obedience.


OMB Uniform Guidance (2014)


The Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (commonly called "Uniform Guidance") was officially implemented in December 2014 by the Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR - now dissolved). The Uniform Guidance – a "government-wide framework for grants management" – is an authoritative set of rules and requirements for Federal awards that synthesizes and supersedes guidance from earlier OMB circulars.*

The reforms that comprise the Uniform Guidance aim to reduce the administrative burden on award recipients and, at the same time, guard against the risk of waste and misuse of Federal funds. Among other things, the OMB's Uniform Guidance does the following:

  • Removes previous guidance that is conflicting and establishes standard language
  • Directs the focus of audits on areas that have been identified as at risk for waste, fraud and abuse
  • Lays the groundwork for Federal agencies to standardize the processing of data
  • Clarifies and updates cost reporting guidelines for award recipients.

*The Guidance was drawn from OMB Circulars A–21, A–87, A–110, and A–122 (which have been placed in past OMB guidances) Circulars A–89, A–102, and A–133 and the guidance in Circular A–50 on Single Audit Act follow-up.
