Venture Exchange-TSX Gold Index

Below is a interesting 12-year monthly chart from John that compares the Venture Exchange with the TSX Gold Index during that time…the Gold Index has out-performed the Venture during most of this period, though recently the Venture has managed to hold up a little better – it’s down 10% from its September high vs. a 21% drop in the Gold Index…since the end of January, 2001, the Venture has gained only 25% while the Gold Index has climbed a more respectable 160%…this compares with a nearly 30% increase in the Dow during the same period…
