NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Last weekend I read an interesting article regarding the correlation between gold and inflation.

According to the study, assuming that inflation doesn't change all that much, gold still has significant downside ahead. Essentially they tied the price of gold to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and have assigned a long-term price ratio to it.
