Gold Market Overview

This edition of Market Overview is first issue in a long series, which analyzes the nature of gold and factors driving its price.

We believe that these considerations results from misunderstandings of gold’s nature. Thus, in this edition of Market Overview we wanted to show that gold should be analyzed as a currency or a global monetary asset rather than a commodity.
