Since 2000, it has had only three negative years compared to eight for the broader equity market,’ wonders Strand. He emphasizes gold’s stability, attractive returns, low correlation, high liquidity, and absence of counterparty risk.”

USAGOLD note: Guzun adds that gold has returned 7.7% annually since 1971, the year the United States went off the gold standard.
