Harnessing Gold’s Low Correlation for Enhanced Portfolio Performance
Mitigating Market Risks with Gold’s Distinctive Characteristics

(USAGOLD – 10/31/2023) Gold remains relatively stable in early U.S. trading on Tuesday, just before the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting. Gold is trading at $1994.80 this morning, down $1.30. Silver is trading at $23.00, down 33 cents. Gold has historically been recognized as a unique asset class that exhibits a low to negative correlation with other major asset classes, such as equities and fixed income. This distinctive characteristic of gold arises from its intrinsic value, its role as a hedge against inflation, and its status as a safe-haven asset during times of economic uncertainty. As a result, gold can act as a stabilizing force in a diversified portfolio, reducing overall volatility and enhancing returns. By including gold in an investment portfolio, investors can benefit from its diversification properties, which can help mitigate risks and provide a buffer against adverse market movements.
