Whether the crisis is financial, economic or health-related, the behavior of investors towards gold in times of turbulence on risky assets has remained the same for decades: purchases of yellow metal are multiplying in order to protect portfolios. Indeed, gold is considered as a "safe haven" asset that makes it possible to offset all or part of the losses recorded on equities. The Covid-19 crisis we are going through is no exception to the rule and the current craze for gold is not waning.
In this paper, we seek to objectively analyze:
- What is the true investment status of gold?
- What are the links between gold and currencies?
- What are the main factors influencing gold?
