GOLD VS SGD Chart. Why Gold might be a good investment in Singapore?



In my last post on gold, I mentioned that gold might provide a good hedge to the dollar. I am using SPDR GOLD SHARES for this example. Gold are traded in USD. I will combine the USD/SGD and GLD/SGD so as to see whether is gold stills a good hedge. Instead of taking all individual values from both charts, I just take values from beginning of each year. Please note that the 2010 values are estimated values from OCT 09.



I multipled USD/SGD and GLD/USD values together to get GLD/SGD. You can see that gold price keeps going up from 2005 to 2009 Oct. Even though market crash from 2008 to 2009, the value of gold in term of SGD still go up. Isn't it a safe haven investment? From $70 to $140, is about 15% compound annually.
