The precious metal gold occurs mostly in alloys and only rarely in its pure form. Its physical properties make it resistant to air, moisture, heat and many solvents. In addition, gold has a high density. Gold is considered a safe investment and is very popular as a means of hedging in times of crisis. Its high value, rarity and uniqueness make the precious metal gold a safe investment that can withstand inflation.

Already since 2000 B.C. Gold was mined in Egypt and the first gold coin was minted in 50 BC. in Rome. This shows that people have always been fascinated by gold, its rarity, durability and beauty.

Due to its properties, gold is also one of the most important industrial raw materials. The yellow precious metal is easy to work with and conducts electricity and heat. Because of its excellent conductivity, gold is mainly used in the electronics industry. But gold is also used in dental technology and has been for around 3000 years. However, gold is most commonly used in the jewelry industry. This line of business accounts for around 75 percent of the processed gold. The precious metal is mined on every continent except in Antarctica, where international regulations prohibit mining. With a 16 percent market share, South Africa is the most important producer of gold.

Global gold reserves have risen steadily over the past few decades and are currently at their highest level. This is also due to the fact that gold, in contrast to other raw materials, is almost indestructible and is not consumed. Thus, the global amount of gold is constantly increasing. The highest gold reserves are in the USA (around 8,133 tons/287 million ounces). Germany ranks second in gold reserves (3,417 tons/120 million ounces), followed by the International Monetary Fund with 3,217 tons/113 million ounces. Only then does France follow (2,586 tons/91 million ounces). The price of gold has experienced a veritable price rally in recent years. After the price of gold passed the US$ 1,000 per ounce mark for the first time in March 2008, by the end of 2011 it had already reached US$ 1,600 per ounce.

Investments in gold are considered a safe haven and crisis-resistant capital investment. You can invest in the yellow precious metal both through securities and through a physical purchase. It is possible to purchase gold in physical form as bars or bullion coins from banks, coin and precious metal dealers. However, the safe storage of gold at banking institutions is usually associated with considerable costs that are not incurred when trading securities. If you trade gold through a physically deposited purchase in the form of securities, however, trading or exchange fees must be paid. You can invest in the precious metal on the stock exchange or with brokers in the form of gold certificates, gold funds or gold ETFs, but you will not receive any physical gold. Another form of investment in gold is the so-called Xetra-Gold, a no-par bond that is based on gold holdings. This can be bought on the stock exchange and can be transferred like a share.

The most important trading centers for gold trading are Zurich, London, New York and Hong Kong. The main exchanges are the New York Mercantile Exchange (COMEX Division), the Chicago Board of Trade, Euronext/LIFFE, the London Buillon Market, the Tokyo Commodity Exchange, the Bolsa des Mercadorias e Futuros and the Korea Futures Exchange.
