May 1, 2009 - Gold investment prices basically refers to the price that an investor pays when they decide to purchase or liquidate their bullion or investment-grade certified rare coins. These gold investment prices fluctuate on a daily basis based on supply and demand on several exchanges worldwide, commonly known as the daily market spot price. In the past few years, many wise American investors have decided to take advantage of the precious metal market because they have seen their values increase exponentially since 2001. All of this occurred while stocks, bonds and real estate floundered amidst the spiralling downfall that puts us in the financial crisis we’re in today. This is precisely the reason why masses of investors have shifted away from mainstream financial markets and into safe haven precious metals that have historically thrived during similar troubling economic environments.
By around 1:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, gold investment prices are experiencing a small tug-of-war between a decline and an incline for the trading day, and currently the metal sits at around $885.90 per ounce, dropping $.30 for the day and gaining $34 in the last year. The latest price projections are forecasting a significant rebound by the end of the month, which could push by prices all the way up to $950 per ounce. It’s very important that we keep a close eye on the overall strength of equity markets, because they currently have an inverse correlation with safe haven precious metals that is expected to continue as the financial crisis worsens.
