Gold has always been an important and valuable resource with a high demand. The metal maintains its value through generations unlike paper currency or coins. Historically, gold has always been a great barrier against inflation because of its ambition to increase in value when the cost of living increases. Out of all the precious metals, gold was always the most popular as an investment project and extensively used in the global investment industry. In 2018, the precious metal had the sixth highest average daily trading volume globally.
