Gold

Gold (Au) is primarily a monetary asset and partly a commodity. It is the world's oldest international currency and an important element of global monetary reserve.

APPLICATIONS

Gold has diverse applications being one of the most malleable and ductile metals with high melting point and easy recyclability. It is useful in medicine and dentistry and, lately, has emerged as a key nano-material. Global gold demand hinges on four main categories: jewelry, investment, central bank reserves, and technology.

MARKET CHARACTERISTICS

The gold market is highly liquid. Gold held by central banks and other major institutions and as retail jewelry is reinvested in the market. APPLICATIONS Gold (Au) is primarily a monetary asset and partly a commodity. It is the world's oldest international currency and an important element of global monetary reserve. As the stock of gold outweighs its demand, it is argued that the core driver of the real price of gold is stock equilibrium rather than flow equilibrium. Gold has low or negative long-period correlation with other asset classes, and so stands out as an effective diversifier even during periods of financial instability.

FACTORS AFFECTING MARKET FUNDAMENTALS

Above-ground supply of gold from central bank sales, reclaimed scrap, and official gold loans. Hedging interest of producers and miners. World macroeconomic factors, such as movement in the dollar and interest rate, and economic events. Globally, gold demand is also influenced by seasonality, that is, weddings, Valentines Day, Christmas and religious festival, including key financial operations such as hedging from hedge funds and several commodities exchanges.

“But in truth, should I meet
with gold or spices in great
quantity, I shall remain till I
collect as much as possible,
and for this purpose I proceed
solely in quest of them”
(Christopher Colombus)

As an investment vehicle, gold is typically viewed as a financial asset that maintains its value and purchasing power during inflationary periods.

  • Gold has a long and fascinating usage history in a diverse range of industries and applications. In each of the applications it is used, gold provides an outstanding performance due to its unique properties of being one of the most malleable and ductile metals with high melting point and easy recyclability. Gold is a material of choice in medicine and dentistry as it is biocompatible. In recent years it has emerged as a key nanomaterial. Global demand for gold is centered on four primary categories: jewelry, investment, central bank reserves, and technology.
