Throughout history, gold has been a prized commodity primarily used as an international and local currency. With the introduction of paper money, gold became redeemable from the money that functioned essentially as a receipt. There is an economic system known as the Gold Standard; this means that the weight of gold is used as a unit of currency. For decades, the government of the United States set the total value of the US Dollar so that one troy ounce of gold was equal to $20.67 – $664.56/kg – however, in 1934, the dollar was devalued to $35.00 per troy ounce ($1125.27/kg). By 1961, gold was becoming hard to maintain at that price, and such, a group of US and European banks agreed to adjust the market to prevent the further devaluation against the increased demand for gold. On March 17th 1968, certain economic and financial circumstances caused the collapse of the gold market, and as a result, a multi-tiered pricing system was established in which gold was still utilized to settle international accounts at the old price of $35.00 per troy ($1.13/kg). However, the price of gold on the private market system was allowed to fluctuate. This multi-tiered pricing solution was abandoned in 1975, and from here on, the price of gold was left to discover its free-market level. In today’s global economy, gold is meant to serve as a natural hedge against global inflation in the last few years, together with crude oil prices and other metals. Over time, gold prices hold a high correspondence with international global growth, especially within developing markets.

Sweet crude oil is a type of petroleum. Petroleum is designated as “sweet” if and only if it contains less than 0.5% sulfur compounds, compared to higher levels of sulfur in what is called sour crude oil. Sweet crude oil contains micro amounts of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. High quality, low sulfur crude is mainly used for processing into gasoline and is always in top demand, particularly among industrialized nations. ‘Light sweet crude oil’ is the most searched for version of crude oil since it contains a disproportionately large amount of these fractions which are used to create gasoline, high-quality diesel and kerosene. The term ‘sweet’ crude originated due to the low levels of sulfur, which provide the oil with a remotely sweet taste and pleasant smell. In the 19th century, purchasers would smell and taste small amounts of the oil as a means to determine whether or not it was a quality product. This oil type is recognized as the ‘gold-standard’ for oil and is traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Sweet Crude Light is considered a natural barrier against inflation as has been seen in the last few years. It is directly correlated to the growth of world markets.

Silver is a high-price alloy, which originated as a use for money around 700 BCE across the Near East. Later, silver production was refined and it was coined in its pure form. Silver was used internationally by nations as a basic unit of currency and monetary value. In today’s world, silver bullion has the ISO currency code of XAG. The United Kingdom’s name for its monetary unit, ‘pound’, reflects the fact that it originally represented the total value of one troy pound of sterling silver. Starting in the 1800s, many nations, like Great Britain and the United States moved in the direction of switching silver currency with gold standard monetary value. In the 20th century, it moved to flat currency. Similar to gold, it is recognized as a natural hedge versus inflation and has been correlated to global growth in the last few years.
