It is also a stable asset, so can keep value in times of systematic financial concern (i.e. when banks are unstable, or there is political instability). Gold prices are also able to sore during times of inflation and times of deflation, unlike ‘paper’ investments. 

2.   Silver

Therefore, copper is in huge demand and so the price is inversely affected by industrial use. Due to industry being what shapes continuous development across the globe, it is inevitable that copper will remain valuable at a constant and steady rate. So, by investing in copper you are adding stability to your assists.

4.   Aluminium
