Gold has long been one of the go-to investments when diversifying one’s portfolio. Investors often consider it a safe haven during economic uncertainty and have essentially been dealt with in line with risky assets. This means that if the dollar fluctuates, the performance of the market will still be in good form.

With inflation rising in the UK, gold is gaining back traction amongst investors as one of the preferred forms of investment. Gold prices have witnessed a slight rise following the expectation that the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England (BoE) will raise their interest rates to counter the rising inflation.

At the time the market closed on Tuesday, the gold prices witnessed a slight rally at US$2,026.66 per ounce. The interest may again be piqued today (10 May) ahead of the BoE’s monetary policy meeting on 11 May.
