Is investing in gold during an election year a smart move?

May 23, 2024, 4:47 p.m. IST

After a strong start to the week both the gold and silver markets are struggling to find much upward traction. This is on the back of some short-term profit making, as well as FOMC minutes which were slightly more hawkish than the market had expected.

Despite how it has performed in the last couple of days, silver started the week making headlines (and for all the right reasons). Many of you contacted us to ask why now? What’s going on? So we made a video with out thoughts, you can find it here. 

In other big news this week UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has called a general election for the 4th of July. This will be one of around 65 elections taking place around the world, in 2024. Elections are always important, but those taking place this year feel especially consequential given the fairly dire outlook for the global economy and geopolitical relations.
