is affected by the supply/demand and global events. Famous as the most important safe haven

asset, Gold has also been used as a currency in the late history.

Silver

of the metal allows Silver to be used in various industries such as electronics, medical,

jewelry, and finance. Being cheaper than gold, Silver coins were used as a currency in the late

history.

demand raw materials in the world. Limited resources and geopolitical concerns highly affect

the prices of Crude Oil, and cause an increased volatility in the financial markets.

automotive. Like most of the industrial commodities, the price of Platinum is more volatile
