GoldMoney's James Turk reports that 2008 was the eighth year in a row that gold has climbed against the US dollar. Since 2001, when the streak began, gold has appreciated an average of 16.3% per year with respect to the US dollar.
Turk also lays out gold's performance against the major currencies, where, to my surprise, we see that gold has also been appreciating at a double-digit rate, on average, against the other major currencies over this time period.
