Company Description: Gold, with a chemical element symbol of AU, is a highly prized precious metal, and has been used in jewelry, and coinage all throughout recorded history. It is a very dense metal, yet soft, and shiny. Gold is the most malleable metal known to man, pure gold is bright yellow and has a very attractive appeal, and because it does not oxidize in air or water it maintains its allure. Gold has many industrial uses in electronics, dentistry, and military applications just to mention a few. Nitric acid dissolves base metals and silver, but gold is insoluble in nitric acid, which is a process that is used to test the presence of gold in objects. Update

Market Research Update

Material Industry Research & Analysis: The materials industry includes companies whose sales originate from the mining, acquisition and sale of physical substances for manufacturing-related purposes. Material Trading Strategy: The materials industry tends to be sensitive to economic cycles. Look for undervalued material investments during economic recessions when stock prices are low and sell material investments during the late stages of a bull markets when stock prices are high. Material stocks quickly increase at the conclusion of a recession, because materials are the primary input for the industrial sector. The global economy is currently in a recession, therefore, it is the perfect time to purchase material investments. Upward sloping stock charts and financial news may indicate a selling opportunity while the opposite means that stocks are becoming undervalued.
