Global economic troubles and fears of recession over the last few months have led to the safe haven buying of gold by investors, and the last few weeks have seen the price skyrocket. Soaring debt and falling economies are a current reality, and have led to many asking: would a return to the gold standard be the answer?

For first time investors, or those relatively new to the gold and silver bullion market, it’s perfectly natural to feel a little intimidated by some of the ‘lingo’ used by those already in the know. However, this should not put you off investing in precious metals. Follow our jargon busting guide to ‘metal-speak’ and you will soon become savvy in the terminology commonly used in the gold and silver market.

The last couple of weeks have seen gold smash through the ceiling, bypassing its highest ever price and skyrocketing upwards. The early hours of this morning saw the price break £1,249 – so what is the reason for these heights, and will they hold?

Tonight, on Thursday 1st August, the gold price in GBP has broken through to reach its highest ever recorded gold price on record. As I write this, new heights never seen before have been reached tonight. There is so much to say on the matter, but it is only right that in these circumstances I give you my own personal opinions. This is in no way to influence you on how you should act, as we are not investment advisors, but we can reflect the market position and its history so far.
