Gold Market

The supply and demand for the buying and selling of gold, a major precious metal. Because gold is considered a hedge against inflation (that is, it retains its value during bouts of inflation), one may buy gold if one thinks the inflation rate might accelerate. Conversely, one may sell gold if one is concerned about disinflation.
