Why gold thrives under pressure

The metal loves tough times - and global uncertainty is driving prices higher.

Summary: The gold price has been driven higher by no shortage of global uncertainty in the last month - the Brexit vote, combined with low interest rates across the world, has demonstrated that central banks and individual investors alike are still flocking to the metal in the face of turmoil on our markets.

Key take out: Despite the protests of economists, many clearly still see the value in holding gold as a hedge against market uncertainty.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Commodities.
