Gold has been dubbed by some as the "world's friend for 5,000 years." While that may be true to varying degrees, it doesn't necessarily mean gold or precious metals have been a friendly place to invest.

After gold prices peaked in nominal dollars at $850 per ounce in 1980, it wasn't until 2008 that gold was able to eventually match its 1980 peak price.

Gold has had a rough 2018. Despite some of the international trade worries and international suspense, the reality is that most investors are just not looking for the “ultimate safety trade” that is often the reason for gold’s rally. Much of this weakness in gold has spilled over into other precious metals as the U.S. dollar strength and the promise of higher interest rates ahead are keeping gold buyers on the sidelines.
