While broader macroeconomic trends are always what’s most significant for the gold price during any given election, some interesting trends emerge when you look at the numbers. And when an election is contentious, historic, or chaotic as 2024’s promises to be, the outcome is all the more significant for gold.

While it doesn’t approach having the same wealth-protecting power of gold or silver, platinum is a precious metal that just never quite gets the love it deserves. Practically speaking, other than jewelry, platinum is best known as a crucial element for catalytic converters for cars. But it’s also used in manufacturing everything from jet engines and missiles to semiconductors and fertilizers.
