Whereas other commodities (such as copper and oil) performed well, many disappointed investors seemed to have turned their backs on gold. Even though this year saw a sharp rise in inflation around the world, the gold price hasn't yet been reflected in the outliers of 2021. Is this a trend that is going to continue? Or not?
