    For what it's worth, here is a chart I made of the historical ratio of S&P500:Gold (monthly) from 1950-2017.

    This should give some indication about how much the S&P 500 may or may not be overvalued.

    So in 2000, the S&P was ~5.5 times the value of gold? Or do I have that backwards?

    That is correct. Dotcom Bubble. We aren't back there yet.

    In reality, what better measure do we have of the value of the S&P500 that its value in gold on any given day? According to this, it is "highish" but not as bad as 2000 yet.

    That doesn't make sense. S&P500 is 2,629.35 and Gold is 1,316.80. That is 1.997:1.

    Just looking at the chart I would say that the S&P500 is a BUY when it goes 1:1 with the price of gold.
