Gold price today
What’s the gold price today? It changes constantly from one minute to the next, but we understand that monitoring the daily gold price in USD is something investors want to do. That’s why our price charts are easy to adjust to show you the metal, the currency and the time period that you would like to see.
Gold has been used as a form of money and a store of wealth for hundreds of years. This continues to be the case today as more investors buy gold bullion bars and coins to diversify their portfolio, knowing that gold can act as a safe haven.
Across the globe we are experiencing the fallout from years of dangerous reactionary financial policies, currency devaluations, inflation and climate pressures. These are already having a damaging effect, not only on our day-to-day lives but also on our savings and investment portfolio. Add to this the events of the last couple of years; a global pandemic, (arguably) out-of-control government spending and fractious relations across the West. It is little wonder that people are turning to gold bullion as a means to protect their savings. The precious metal has consistently shown to hold its value over the long-term and as it is tangible it is not exposed to the same risks we see with the likes of stocks, shares and even sovereign currencies.
In checking the gold price today or a historical gold price chart, you get an idea of gold price movements over time which can better inform you as to when is the right time to buy gold. In truth there is no perfect time to invest in gold, but equally there is no bad time to buy gold bullion.
We want to hold gold in our portfolios because it is a form of financial insurance, and there is never a time when you are happy to be without your insurance. Whilst you might see a daily gold price move of $10 - $20 this is not a significant enough of a percentage change in the gold price to determine the difference between making a badly timed investment decision.
If you believe that the factors that drive the price of gold (inflation, uncertainty, geopolitical and systemic risks) are unlikely to disappear any time soon then we recommend you buy gold when you can. Many people choose to cost-average into their position, perhaps spending the same amount each month, regardless of the price of gold.
