Data categories: Price and performance

Price discovery is crucial for any market. Gold not only has a spot price, but it also has the LBMA Gold Price, as well as several regional prices. The LBMA Gold Price is used as an important benchmark throughout the gold market, while the other regional gold prices are important to local markets. 

This data set provides the gold price over a range of timeframes (daily, weekly, monthly, annually) going back to 1978, and in the major trading, producer, and consumer currencies.
