Also known as 'the precious metal', gold is considered by many to be a safe haven, ideal for investment during uncertain times in the market. Over the last decade, gold prices have risen sharply due primarily to the devaluation of currencies by central banks. Historically, the printing of money and quantitative easing have caused gold prices to rise. This is because investors believe that such measures hurt the viability of currencies and often cause inflation.
Gold have become a favorite of many leading investors. You too should strongly considered gold as part of your investment portfolio. While a diverse portfolio can limit risk and exposure to market volatility, gold is special in that it is often considered ideal in both bull and bear markets.
For thousands of years, gold was the monetary standard by which many societies were governed. The United States used the Gold Standard for much of its history. However, in 1971 the United States delinked the U.S dollar from gold, and signed an agreement with several major nations that would effectively make its currency the reserve currency of the global economy.
This delink of gold and the USD caused gold prices to fluctuate. Between 2007 and 2011, gold prices tripled in value, as investor concern regarding the fiscal policy of the U.S. government grew, along with the slowdown of several major economies. From 2011 to 2015, gold prices fell as investor sentiment became more bullish. Gold however is once again on the rise over the last year, gaining popularity as investors become more concerned over the economic forecast of several major countries and the future of the Eurozone.
