One reassuring thing that’s come out of the current US political turmoil is that gold is still an important safe haven. Yes, we live in a new world – digital age, cell phones, fast food kiosks, 3 year olds ordering pizza through Alexa listening in the living room, blah blah. But when something unexpected happens – boom! People sell stocks and buy gold. Yes, the 3500 year old relic. “The shiny metal you can’t use for anything.” Why? Because Maslow’s pyramid was right. At the bottom, people need security.
