Gold Bullion Is “Long Term Insurance Policy” Says Steel of HSBC


 -- Published: Wednesday, 11 May 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

By: Mark O'Byrne

Gold bullion is a “long term insurance policy” according to James Steel, chief commodities analyst at HSBC, who spoke with Tom Keene about what’s driving gold markets on “Bloomberg Surveillance” yesterday.

In Bloomberg’s “Single Best Chart,” Keene displays inflation adjusted ‘London gold prices’ going back to 1950.

Steel is cautious on gold in the short term but positive in medium and long term and thinks gold will “churn higher.”

When asked about whether he has a “message for gold bugs … people who have Krugerrands in their dressing room drawer”, Steel spoke of gold’s portfolio insurance benefits and “the diversification argument is the most powerful … it is an insurance policy”.
