Which asset you decide to invest in depends on what you want to gain from the investment itself, as each offer their own unique benefits and drawbacks.

Gold hit its highest level in six years last week, as the price soared to $1,452 (£1,157) on Thursday. Gold prices also gained today after a small fall over the weekend, after tensions in the Middle East and weak financial markets.

Gold seemed to be on a bit of a rollercoaster ride last week, starting off at just over £1,100 on Monday and then then rising by 3.6%, hitting an 8-year high of £1,140 during Wednesday.
