A very special forex symbol that includes gold is the XAU/USD pair. This currency pair tracks the value of one troy ounce of gold relative to the US dollar. It is a fact that gold is one of the oldest ways of storing value throughout history. However, do you know how gold affects forex prices?
Gold-related forex pairs have two interesting market behaviors. This article will explore these two points for traders, as well as discuss how gold affects forex market prices.
The first interesting point is that gold reflects the state of political and economic stability. In other words, during times of geopolitical or economic uncertainty, investors seek safe-haven assets such as gold. On the other hand, when there are economic prosperity and political stability, the low returns from gold prices may lead investors to seek higher returns (and higher-risk assets) in other markets. The forex pairs related to gold can be an attractive option for investors seeking to diversify and find a wider variety of returns.
Whether related to political or economic uncertainty, when there is a demand to acquire gold, the gold-related forex pairs such as XAU/USD can become more volatile as investors engage in more speculative trading. On the other hand, when the price of gold decreases, either due to low demand or due to high supply, investors may seek to sell gold-related forex pairs, in anticipation of a price decrease.
Using Advanced Charting, from FxTrade Practice (FXCM.com) we can see more than ten years of trades.
It is possible to observe those two periods, first, between 2008 and 2012, with a good increase in the value of the gold-related forex pairs and relatively low volume of transactions.
It was the period of uncertainty coming after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy and the great global financial crisis that followed. The second period from 2013 to 2018, with a significant increase in volume and relative stability in the price of gold-related forex pairs.
What marks this second period is relative global economic stability
We can see that something has apparently changed in 2019. Probably the trade war US and China that brought some uncertainty over the global economy in near future. However, events like these can also create opportunities if you have the proper tools to identify market signals.
In the forex market, information and education are like gold. Wiseinvest has a large inventory of internal and written knowledge to share with you.
