Significance of Gold

  • Gold is able to hold its value in the long run (long-term preserver of wealth)
  • Gold outperforms during periods of market stress. During periods of economic crisis, gold prices more than often rises, for example, during the crash of 2008 the prices of gold ended in a 5.5% gain.
  • Gold has no credit risk and derives its worth from intrinsic values, allowing it to be the ultimate safe haven asset during periods of market stress.
  • Gold exhibits minimal or no correlation with most other asset classes, making it a powerful tool for investment diversification

Factors affecting Gold

  • Value of the US Dollar – Due to gold being valued/priced in US Dollar, the value of the currency would have major impacts on gold prices. Hence, a strong US Dollar would ensure that gold prices are low, on the other hand, a weaker US Dollar would more than often lead to an increase in gold prices.
  • Political and Geopolitical changes – Gold could be regarded as a safe haven asset to possess during times of political and geopolitical risk. Historically, gold has performed better than any other high-quality liquid asset during periods of crisis.
  • Inflation – Gold has been historically proven to be an effective tool against inflation. Market studies has shown that inflation is one of the leading indicators to predict price of gold. The buying power of gold has been constantly strong in comparison to the weakening dollar in the last 40 years. During periods of inflation, there would usually be strong increase in gold prices due to increased demand.
