Some recent high fliers in gold.
Some are likening Ukraine rises as hyperinflationary but compare this chart to the Zimbabwe one below.
Here's the short term view.
And in Log Format where you can see where gold went up from 10,000 Zimbabwe dollars up to 37 billion Zimbabwe dollars.
For a 3,700,000 fold increase.
Ukraine is currently an eight fold increase - far short of hyperinflation.

I opened Sharelynx.com up in 1998 and have spent the last 16 years making charts and collating data. I have been saving, storing and collecting all facets on gold for the last 3 decades and have built up a huge collection. I'm a one man show doing all the hosting webpage design and installation plus chart creation and databasing. I also supply charts and datafeeds to a number of other gold themed websites. In the late 1990's I was very active on the Kitco Gold Forum and then later on the LongWave forums. Since mid 2005 I have pulled away from any public interaction with forums and now spend all my time collecting and collating data and making charts and new webpages.
