1)of gold being seems awkward (as per my thinking)

B. that gold is more expensive as ever happens to fit with a larger narrative that also does not square with the facts, namely,
1)Correct idiom is more X than Y
2) that is required after namely

C. that gold is more expensive than ever happens to fit with a larger narrative that also does not square with the facts, namely, that
This one is correct

D. of gold being more expensive than ever happened to fit with a larger narrative that also did not square with the facts, namely, that

2)converts the present verb to past verb (happened)

E. that gold is as expensive than ever happens to fit with a larger narrative that also do not square with the facts, namely, that
