Moreover, the growth of quotations conquered more and more peaks, especially taking into account inflation. Gold also had happy days. At first, the value of the precious metal fell along with other assets, but over the next four months, its price rose by 40%.
It seemed to many investors and analysts that gold had finally “caught its wave” to new price records. But at some point, everything changed.
