Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Gold doesn't trade in a vacuum.   Markets are connected. What happens in one often affects others.   So if you want to understand what's happening with gold, you need to know what's going on in the markets that affect gold.   And while lots of traders focus only on the short term, it's important to have a big-picture view, too. The big picture shows you the long-term trends at work… and when they change. It can help you find low-risk opportunities to open new positions. And it can help you determine where to set your stops.   Today, we'll look at the big picture for two markets that affect gold… along with gold itself.   Let's get started…   The first market we'll look at is U.S. government bonds… specifically, the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasurys. The U.S. government is considered the world's safest borrower. (It can print money to pay lenders back, after all.) The rate it pays to borrow money for 10 years serves as the world's benchmark interest rate.
