The change in political and economic scenarios seems to have prompted a change in the appetite for risk. The result being that the 'safe have' appeal of gold has paled. Gold prices are down more than 6% since they peaked for the year in mid-March. But the return from the metal is still positive for 2014 thanks to the blistering start.
