Why additional interest is linked to Gold Index?
The additional interest of Deposit is tied to the gold price index, expressed in euros. Both stock, bonds and real estate markets have generated quite high returns over the last few years, and people are increasingly cautious about the current potential of these markets, due to the sharp rise in prices and high investor assets in these markets.
Given the uncertainties of the financial market, in order to protect the accumulated assets, market players begin to look for alternative investments, one of which is gold. Gold is often referred to as the best protection against depreciation of money (currently, the money volume in the market is extremely high, inflation expectations are rising), and protection is possible if prices on financial markets start falling. All these assumptions make it possible to expect a positive change in the price of gold.
What determines the changes in Gold Price?
The dynamics of the gold market is somewhat more complex than of the most other metals, as its use covers several areas: investment (including bank reserves), jewellery industry and the electronics industry. In terms of investment, the demand for gold is always boosted by insecurity in global financial markets, and inflation and interest rates also play a role. Also, the supply/demand balance is very much affected by the change in the level of gold reserves of central banks: by increasing or decreasing the amount of gold reserves available to the state, it is bought or sold on the market.
The jewellery industry takes on average about half of the demand for gold, and Asia's largest countries, China, India and others, are creating the highest demand for gold in this segment. Therefore, the economic development and livelihoods of these countries are of great importance for the demand for gold.
An important part of gold is also consumed in the electronics industry and in medicine. Like all other industries, the electronics industry is cyclical, so the general economic trend has an impact on the price of gold.
Since 2000, the average annual gold return in euros has reached almost 8 per cent.
