The Gold Mine

*Ding Ding* 

Are you guys aware that the Gold price has yet again revisited the $1,700 area? It is the highest level since European debt crisis in 2013. In usual cases, the gold price rises whenever a market plunge occurs.

The reason gold tends to be resilient during a stock market crash is that the two are negatively correlated. In simple words, when one goes up, the other tends to go down. Gold is considered to be a safe haven and serves as a form of insurance against adverse economic events. On Thursday, Gold surged more than 1% as the number of Americans filing unemployment claimed to have shot to a record high.
