On this page we present a daily gold return calculator. Enter any two dates since January 2, 1968, and we'll compute annualized and total returns on silver between those dates. We also optionally adjust the quoted returns for inflation (CPI).

Sources and Credits on the Gold Return Calculator
- Inflation is based on the CPI-U from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We use interpolation and extrapolation to present daily inflation indices; please see our original article, the Daily Inflation Calculator, for the full details on the methodology.
- The gold price quotes are London fixing levels, credit the London Bullion Market Association, and the API is provided through NASDAQ Data Link. Prices are quotes as price per Troy Ounce.
This calculator fetches data every evening at midnight Pacific. If you need this information for trading purposes please keep the freshness in mind and verify all numbers manually. The calculator will automatically snap dates to the best available data.
Gold as an Investment
For as long as recorded history notes, gold has held a special place in the jewelry – and the portfolios – of mankind. However, while I can attest to the popularity of gold in jewelry (I asked my wife and she concurs), I can't advise you on gold's suitability for an investment portfolio, one way or another. Please consult a financial advisor to discuss if silver is an appropriate option.
