Obamanomics: Gold Performance

Obama can thank the Federal Reserve once again for inflating the price of gold during his time as President of the United States. Gold has put up triple digit returns to the tune of +106.7% since January of 2009. Should he or Romney take on a crusade to strengthen the US dollar, things can quickly change for gold and other precious metals like silver.

In honor of tonight's presidential debate, we've examined the performance of several different asset classes and their performance from January 20, 2009 to today to see just how well President Obama has done during his first term.
