This is because a lot of people are uncertain about what the economy is going to be from now on, some have even found themselves with no job security and hence uncertain of how they are going to make it through to the end of the month or the end of the year. Another reason is that the price of gold has jumped sky high and all indications show that it will continue to do so for so for some time. If you have gold that you have been holding on to, it may come in handy for paying those bills or buy more essential goods.
