Gold Set to Shine?

April 17th 2020 – Written by Andrew Chorley

We posted the chart across a while back and thought it would be useful to provide an update; the three year change in the price of Gold divided by US Equities has now moved firmly positive; crossing the 0% line has historically seen Gold provide strong returns. 

From the points highlighted there were the following returns: - 

  • April 1978 to February 1980               275%
  • November 2001 to April 2003               18%
  • October 2005 to September 2011            288%


All returns well worth having; add to this the expanding debt levels of Governments, negative real interest rates and generally negative sentiment holding Gold is a crucial part of any investment strategy - as Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Capital Hedge Fund has famously said, “If you don’t own gold, you don’t know history.”
