Gold prices rise during long and fleeting stock market crashes. Gold, silver and bonds are the classics that traditionally remain stable or rise when markets crash. First we'll look at Gold and Silver Prices. The following table shows the eight biggest falls of the S& P 500 since 1976 and how the Gold and Silver Prices responded to each of them. This makes them attractive when the stock market is volatile and increased demand pushes prices up.
To help answer the questions posed above, I analyzed past stock market declines and measured the performance of gold and silver in each of them to see if there are any historical trends. Jeff speaks regularly at conferences on precious metals, is a member of the board of directors of Strategic Wealth Preservation in Grand Cayman and provides exclusive analysis and market commentary to GoldSilver clients. This is because the catalysts for the rise of gold were not related to the stock market, but rather to the economic and inflationary problems that were taking place at that time. Stocks listed on foreign exchanges may be subject to additional trading and exchange rate charges, administrative costs, withholding withholding and different accounting and reporting standards.
However, regardless of what stocks may do, is it wise to lack a significant amount of physical gold and silver in light of all the risks we face today? I don't think so. Exchange rates can adversely affect the value of stocks in British pounds and you could lose money in British pounds even if the stock price rises in the source currency. As the son of an award-winning gold digger, with family-owned mining claims in California, Arizona and Nevada, Jeff has deep roots in the industry. But does this coverage hold up during stock market crashes? Knowing what effect a market crash and subsequent dollar collapse will have on silver and gold is vital for making investment decisions now and then deciding what course to take in the event of a major recession or depression.
Stocks benefit from economic growth and stability, while gold benefits from economic difficulties and crises. We need to consider the possibility that this will happen again and that citizens will be attracted to gold for reasons not related to the performance of S&P. Brokers sometimes point to a 100-year chart of the stock market and show that it always recovers and rises, even after big falls. The value of stocks, stocks, and any dividend income can fall or rise and is not guaranteed, so you may get back less than you invested.
