Merging two seperate sets of time data into one


I'm trying to match up dates from store sales to the spot price of gold in order to see what level of correlation exists. I currently have two sets of data: 1) Dates and Total Sales for the day and 2) Date and Close Spot Price of Gold for the day

The issues I'm having is that some of the dates in data set 1 do not exist in data set 2 

All I'm trying to do is match up the Close Spot Price of Gold from data set 2 with the Dates and Total Sales in data set 1

Here is the link to the spreadsheet:


Thank you for your help


following is a solution to the problem
