With everyone focused on the noise from the markets, today King World News thought it was a good idea to take a step back and look at the big picture of the war between gold and the Federal Reserve. This led to a remarkable question: Is the price of gold headed to nearly $20,000?
MacroTrends: This chart (below) shows the ratio of the gold price to the St. Louis Adjusted Monetary Base back to 1918.

King World News note on chart II (below): There is a massive chasm between the Fed's balance sheet and today's gold price. This is one of the many reasons the gold price is set for a historic upside surge (see chart below that is updated through June of 2015).
