Gold

Gold is unique for its durability (it doesn't rust or otherwise corrode), malleability and its ability to conduct both heat and electricity. It has some industrial applications in dentistry and electronics, but we know it principally as a base for jewellery and as a form of currency.

The value of gold is determined by the market 24 hours a day, nearly seven days a week. Gold trades predominantly as a function of sentiment; its price is less affected by the laws of supply and demand. This is because new mine supply is vastly outweighed by the sheer size of above-ground, hoarded gold. To put it simply, when the hoarders feel like selling, the price drops. When they want to buy, new supply is quickly absorbed and the gold prices are driven higher.
factors for an increased desire to trade gold.

1.Systemic Financial Concerns
When banks and money are perceived as unstable and/or political stability is questionable, gold has often been sought as a safe store of value.

2.Inflation
When real rates of return in the equity, bond or real estate markets are negative, people regularly flock to gold as an asset that will maintain its value.

3.War or Political Crises
War and political upheaval have always sent people into gold-hoarding mode. An entire lifetime's worth of savings can be made portable and stored until it needs to be traded for foodstuffs, shelter or safe passage to a less dangerous destination.

Mazkan International has exclusive access through its global network of partners to mines and refineries and is active in within the facilitation of trading physical gold from doré gold bars to gold bullion and gold dust. A doré gold bar is a semi-pure alloy of gold and silver, usually created at the site of a mine. It is then transported to a refinery for further purification. Gold Bullion generally stored within a bullion bank are a highly desirable commodity within the industry. The value of bullion is typically determined by the value of its precious metals content, which is defined by its purity and mass. To confirm the purity of the gold, a modern laboratory uses XRF technology to accurately assess its quality in order to ensure the owner receives fair market value for it. It is also weighed extremely accurately.
