The Value of Gold and Why the Gold Market Moves

Gold is one of the top commodity markets, behind only crude oil. However, price action for gold does not follow traditional supply and demand as other commodity markets do. Inventory levels and the expected demand typically determine the price of a commodity, and prices will rise when inventories are low, but demand is high. On the contrary, currency fluctuations and interest rates impact prices of gold more. Gold is inversely correlated to the U.S. dollar, and bond yields highly. Thus, when the U.S. dollar dips with interest rates in parallel, gold tends to rally. Gold is also very scarce, and this fact gives gold its value. Investors value gold for different reasons. These reasons include:

  • The scarcity of gold
  • The ability of gold to be traded
  • Gold's potential as a safe haven investment

As a result, many investors look to gold when they want to make an investment in precious metals.
