Gold and diamond jewelry are becoming a trend in the US market
Posted On July 17, 2021
Gold and diamonds are becoming more and more of a trend, as investors look for ways to diversify their portfolios, as gold prices soar.
Gold is expected to reach $1,600 an ounce in 2018, up from $1.1515 in 2017, according to the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission.
The most common form of investing is through futures contracts that offer buyers a chance to buy gold at a discount to its face value.
The futures contracts are traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), which has been a major hub for gold trading since 2013.
The market has been buoyed by a strong bull market and continued interest in the precious metal.
Gold and diamond sales have increased in recent years, as buyers sought to diversified their portfolios.
According to the Nymex, the average price of gold traded on Monday jumped by almost $5,000 from a year ago, as the price of platinum rose by nearly $7,000.
The average price for gold rose by more than $10,000 over the same period.
Gold prices have also risen dramatically over the past year, jumping more than 8% in 2016.
Gold prices have jumped to a high of $1:18,717 an ounce earlier this year, when the price hit $1K an ounce.
However, gold prices have since been trending downwards.
The S&P 500 index of stocks dropped by almost 6% in 2017 and by less than 1% in 2018.
Diamonds, meanwhile, have fallen by more over the course of the year.
The price of the precious stone is currently at $3,890 an ounce, down from $3.35K an hour ago, according the NYMEX.
Gold Prices have been rising since the beginning of 2017, and have been steadily climbing ever since.
As of today, gold has a market capitalization of $9.8 trillion, which makes it the third most valuable currency on the planet after the U, the Chinese yuan and the Swiss franc.
The gold market is worth over $30 trillion and has been growing every month since the end of September.
The silver market has also been booming since the start of the last year, as prices for the metal have surged by nearly 20% in the past two months.
Silver is an important investment for many investors as it is the third-most valuable metal after gold and gold bullion.
The U.K.’s Royal Mint has been selling its gold bullions to fund a program to help those who are unable to buy their precious metal in the market.
The program, known as the “bail-in”, allows buyers to buy silver in a limited amount at a discounted price and then keep their silver for five years.
While the program has been successful in raising funds, it has also raised the specter of an imminent crisis.
A U.k.-based report released by the Royal Mint last week said that there was a “high probability” that a crisis in the silver market would hit.
The report said the crisis could hit by the end or early 2020, adding that the silver price would eventually rise by around 20% to $3 per ounce.
“The bull market in silver is unlikely to continue,” the report added.
“Silver prices have been on a tear and the market is expected increase by at least 10% in 2021.”
In 2018, gold stocks gained $6.5 billion, according a Bloomberg report.
Gold futures were up $8.5 million.
Gold rose by $3 billion.
Gold bullion has also gained by $2.2 billion, the report said.
“Investors have been buying and selling gold for over a decade,” said Daniel Fritsch, chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs.
“While gold bulls might not be overly worried about a market crash, they may still be worried about their holdings.”
Gold stocks rose $1 billion in 2018 with gold trading at $1k an ounce for the first time.
Gold has been on an incredible run since its collapse in 2007.
Gold bullion prices have doubled in the same time period, with prices reaching a record high of more than 2,000,000 ounces in November 2020.
The rally has since cooled.
According the NYMB, gold is up about 30% in 2019, according Silverman Advisors, but is down by about 5% in 2020.
The price of silver has continued to fall over the last few years.
The metal has lost more than 50% of its value since the turn of the century.
In 2020, silver fell $8 billion.
Gold, meanwhile has fallen $1 trillion, according S&P Dow Jones Indices.
Gold and silver bullion are now trading at roughly equal prices.
Gold has risen to $10.5 trillion.
Silver has fallen to $2,200 an ounce and platinum to $4,700 an ounce since the early 2000s. Gold
