Why gold was the best buy in 2008-9 and will be this time too…

What was the best asset class to buy for the recovery that followed the 2008-9 crash in global financial markets? Step forward gold whose rise was only exceeded by silver.

Precious metals not only delivered the fastest recovery from that huge sell-off but offered increases way above the pre-crash levels. Gold tripled from its low in the crash, while silver went on to record an eight-fold increase, still just shy of its 1980 all-time high.
