Date: Thursday, September 28, 2017
Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 1 hour
Gold performance moved in tandem with stocks during the first half of the year, showcasing that a bull stock market is not always bad for gold. However, gold has since picked up further steam as geopolitical uncertainty has increased and stocks faltered earlier this summer. Through the first nine months of the year, *gold has outperformed the major U.S stock and bond indices. **Investment demand remains robust as an increasing number of institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds and central banks seek gold as a potential source of return and diversification to traditional stock and bond portfolios. Consumer demand has benefited from structural economic reforms and there has been unexpected growth in key markets for gold.
