Time to buy Gold?

In this week’s The Edge Malaysia, we suggest that it may be time to consider putting a small percentage of one’s portfolio into the yellow metal, as a hedge against rising risk broadband.

Equity markets have generally done very well, from emerging markets to the United States. So have fixed income instruments. But likely rise in global interest rates, albeit gradually, may be capping these potentials.

Geo-political tensions in South China Sea and Europe suggest some risk diversification is reasonable.

Finally, net long positions in gold by hedge funds and money managers have increased in recent weeks, as reported by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Read The Edge this week for the complete analysis.

  1. Depends who you speaks with, gold price movement is a mystery. So is some of the other commodities. Perhaps someone can do a correlation between liquidity vs gold price,or for the matter vs all commodities. It is harder to predict gold price than stocks, where you can estimates its sustainable earnings, whereby gold price movements is basically based on sentiments. Good luck to those investors who makes money from gold investment.
