International investors hit the gold market

While the price of gold has been fairly volatile for some time there appears to be something of a renewed vigour for the precious element. The price of gold at the moment is around about $931 although a significant gold trading company, Bullion Vault, has today suggested that investors are buying gold in large quantities as a hedge against future inflation.

There is no doubt that gold has been a useful hedge against inflation in the past and many investors feel that with inflation set to return as the worldwide economy improves there is scope for further improvement in the price. However, those who follow the gold market will be surprised to find out that some gold experts believe the price of the metal will rise to over $2000 in the short to medium term as and when inflation returns to haunt the international investment market.

When you look back at the price of gold, there have been impressive trends in the past with the price up over 100% between 2003 and 2008 in dollar terms. It has also risen by a massive 195% in dollar terms over the last decade, something which many investors hope to replicate in the future. If you are looking to invest in commodity markets it is essential that you take relevant professional advice from specialists in this area.
