Investing in gold

At MoneyWeek, we've been tipping gold since 2001. In that time it went from $250 to $1,900 an ounce in 2011 (a 660% increase), hitting record highs each year since 2002.

Successful investing is about the diversification and management of risk. It makes sense to have a part of your wealth invested in gold. At MoneyWeek, we show you the best ways to do that.

Gold: the MoneyWeek view

April 2014: Hang on to your portfolio insurance Gold has fallen from recent highs. But demand from both central banks and investors in emerging markets should mean that it won't fall too far.
