All you need to know about gold: The WGC version comes online

by Greg Klein | November 8, 2018

Yellow metal’s allure might have its irrational side but the people who produce the stuff evidently want well-informed consumers. To that end, the World Gold Council has unveiled Goldhub, a new website promising “the definitive source of data and insight needed to make informed decisions on investing in gold.”

The WGC credits the site with reliable information and expert analysis from transparent sources. Among the features are charts, reports, forecasts and interactive tools. Key categories include data, research, the portfolio simulator and gold as an asset class.

The WGC says its staff follow a comprehensive process to ensure the most accurate info possible. Outsourced data undergoes a vetting procedure. The site presents a note explaining the methodology behind each data series.

Representing 24 gold mining companies, the WGC calls itself the industry’s market development organization, with a mandate “to stimulate and sustain demand for gold, provide industry leadership and be the global authority on the gold market.”

Somewhat different precious metals perspectives can be gleaned from the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee.
