Introduction to Gold Trading

 

About Gold

 

As early as 643 BC, Turkey had been using gold as currency equivalent during barter trade activities. The first gold coin was produced as far back as 560 BC.

In the mid 19th century, the world adopted the “gold standard” to better regulate the global trade activities. This “gold standard” guarantees any monetary amount of paper currency can be exchanged to physical gold according to its equivalent value with the local fiscal agency. This has greatly improve the overall global trade environment and confidence level, and thus promotes healthy growth.

During the great economic recession in 1929, the market confidence collapsed and pushed the gold prices to a record high. Soon after, the United States Federal Reserve Bank stepped in to intervene and stabilized the overall gold price at USD$35/Ounce. Since then, gold has been the standard choice for many countries’ general reserved asset/capital.

It wasn’t till 1970s, when gold reserve could not keep up with the pace of which United States was developing, the gold price was adjusted to USD$38/Ounce. In 1973, the price was again adjusted to USD$42/Ounce.
It wasn’t long before the “gold standard” was soon abolished by the world and price skyrocketed to USD$120/Ounce.

Ever since, gold has been one of the most traded precious metal in the commodity markets around the world.

We have experienced large spike in gold prices, upwards of USD$1900/ Ounce!
