GOLD is more than just a precious metal
GOLD is a foundation asset within any long term savings or investment portfolio.
As one of the few financial assets that do not rely on an issuer's promise to pay, GOLD offers refuge from widespread default risk. It offers investors insurance against extreme movements in the value of other asset classes.
Like all prices, the GOLD price reflects not only the inherent value of GOLD, but also the relative strength of the currency in which it is quoted. For example, the dollar price of GOLD may increase more in percentage terms than the sterling price of GOLD, to the extent that the change in price is a reflection of dollar weakness (in this case, against sterling) rather than an intrinsic change in GOLD market fundamentals.
