The Gold Market
Tuesday, 14th March 2006
The past year was a most interesting one for gold. On the one hand, the gold price rose 18% during 2005 and touched a 25 year high early in 2006. Gold rose against all major currencies and against most other asset classes including U.S. equities and bonds. The gold market also exhibited increased momentum as it attracted new investment flows. It took the gold price three years to rise 25% from its bear market low of U.S.$252 set in 1999. It took only 90 days for the gold price to rise 25% from U.S.$440 to U.S.$550 as we entered 2006.
