Misery Index Vs. Forward P/E Ratio Vs. Gold

The misery index is the sum of the unemployment rate and the inflation rate. It can be very useful to predict the forward P/E ratio (price/expected earnings). The misery index has been falling since 2010 till 2015.

The lower the misery index (blue chart), the higher the P/E ratio (red chart), which means stocks get valued higher. A low misery index might explain why in 2014, stock prices were valued that high.

Another correlation is that between the misery index and gold. The more misery, the higher the gold price.
