The Price of Gold vs. United States Debt Levels

It was recently reported by CNS news that the U.S. Treasury issued $1 trillion in new debt over the past eight weeks in order to pay down the principal on maturing U.S Treasury securities and to fund new deficit spending.

The CNS report highlighted that the U.S. debt is still growing.

As the chart below shows from 2000-2013 there was a fairly tight correlation in the rising size of the amount of United States debt and the rising price of gold. Since early 2013, that correlation has been broken as U.S. debt levels continue to rise and the price of gold falls.

Since U.S. debt levels are not expected to fall any time soon, does gold have some catching up to do?
