Investors generally buy gold as a way of diversifying risk when s..t hits the proverbial fan.

That’s why the precious metal appears to perform well in times of war or political instability. Conversely, stocks and bonds perform best in a stable political climate.

We are seeing this right now, as the threat of war between Russia and Ukraine grows.

There’s a strong historical precedent for this behaviour.

For example, the Iranian Revolution, the Iran-Iraq war, the Soviet Union invasion of Afghanistan, and the Iranian hostage crisis saw gold rise:

  • 23% in 1977,
  • 37% in 1978, and
  • a truly absurd 126% in 1979.

More recently in August 2017 we saw the price of precious metals rise quite sharply as the US and North Korea engaged in some half-arsed sabre rattling.

In 2020, gold jumped to its highest level in almost seven years as Iran and the US threatened to cross swords.

It important to note that there’s a fair bit of evidence to suggest these gold price runs are not usually sustained by the drums of war alone. Prices have a tendency to snap back to the mean once markets have digested or disregarded the bad news.

But gold in 2022 has other things going for it, like rampant global inflation and resultant rate tightening cycle. This could be the spark gold needs.

A month ago, no one wanted to touch gold, says Edward Moya, senior market analyst at OANDA.

“Now gold has suddenly become the flavour of the month, now that investors are scrambling for safe havens as geopolitical risks intensify and fears grow that the central banks might go overboard with tightening monetary policy,” he says.

“A sea of red on Wall Street has sent gold above the $US1900 level and investors might see further bullish momentum if the Ukraine situation intensifies.

“Earlier de-escalation in Russia-Ukraine tensions in the week have been completely undone and now it seems the risks of an invasion are growing.

“Gold has key resistance around the $US1920 to $US1930 zone, but if the haven bid remains strong, bullish momentum could support a move towards the $US1970 level.”

Next stop: $US2,000/oz.

The large gold miners have all had a good week; and rightly so.

Two weeks ago Newcrest’s (ASX:NCM) shares were at December 2019 levels, when gold was selling for $US1,510/oz.

Northern Star (ASX:NST) was at May 2019 levels, when gold was worth a paltry $US1,280/oz. MADNESS.

Still, Aussies gold shares are yet to move with any great urgency. Is this a buying opportunity?
