Gold gets a Trump bump

Gold received a fillip as Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un hurled threats at each other last week. But there are other bullish factors underpinning the precious metal.

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.
