Central Banks are Buying Gold Again.
Central Banks bought the most gold in 2018 since 1967. The central banks of Russia and Kazakhstan have been adding gold to reserves for years. According to the World Gold Council, they were joined in 2018 by central banks that haven’t bought gold for years or even decades, including the central banks of Argentina, China, India, Iraq, Iran, Hungary, Poland, Thailand, the Philippines and Turkey.
