Finbold.com researchers commented on the gold purchasing trend during the pandemic. According to the researchers:

 

“When the pandemic hit, most countries began a new dash towards Gold. The dash came in the backdrop of central banks printing massive amounts of money to stimulate the global economy. Notably, Gold continues to have an intrinsic value reassuring countries of good returns in case of heightened inflation.”
