Gold counters the global jitters

Sometimes doing nothing is the best form of investment.

Summary: As share markets fell on uncertainties around the Greek financial crisis, gold has been one of the few commodities to hold its ground. It should never be the sole investment in a portfolio but it does fulfil a role as a sheet anchor.

Key take-out: While tipping a future gold price is a mug’s game, gold is likely to remain immune to moves on financial and commodity markets.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Gold.
