Gold is 3.35% higher and silver 4.53% higher this week in US dollars in the aftermath of Obama's re-election.

(Bloomberg) -- China Starting Gold ETPs Would Mean Demand Gain, WGC’s Liu Says

(Bloomberg) – Gold Should Be Thought of as Insurance Policy, Wickwire Says
Investors should look at gold as an insurance policy for other financial assets, Joseph Wickwire, who manages $4.5 billion at Fidelity Investments, said today at the Bloomberg Portfolio Manager conference in New York.


Macroeconomic imbalances, reflationary policies and geopolitical tensions will drive prices higher in the long term, Wickwire said. Investors with risk-tolerant portfolios should hold the metal to hedge against volatility in other markets, he said.


“Gold pays off when stocks, bonds and currencies disappoint,” Wickwire said. “A little goes a long way.”

Jason Toussaint, managing director at the producer-funded World Gold council, said in an interview in New York.


Seeing increased dialogues among U.S. pension funds to look at commodities, including gold, as an investment, Toussaint said.
