Research on Precious Metals

This blog aims to summarise in layman’s terms the academic research on the Economics and Finance of precious metals. This work is a continuation of a paper published by some of this blogs contributors which summarises of all the academic research available on the economics and finance of gold, available in draft form for free here with he final version behind a paywall here. An index of its sections is available here on this blog. This is a work in progress so please bear with us.

This blog summarise research that has not been covered in above published paper in order to provide updates on the sections. We will almost certainly miss some, and encourage readers to bring such omissions to our attention.

As part of the summarising we will occasionally provide our own views on these markets and on the research but for the most part  it is designed to provide an understandable summary of precious metals markets research, and to facilitate discussion on same.

This site is run by Dr. Fergal O’Connor under the supervision of  Prof. Brian Lucey. Sile Li, Sam Vigne  Dr Charles Larkin and Prof. Dirk Baur also provide occasional contributions.

        Hi Fergal

        Thank you very much for the information. I submitted my paper for the KLU finance meeting on gold and it was accepted also. Since myself and the co author had problem in the visa process. Due to this we were not able to participate and present our paper. I am interested to go for Post Doctoral Research in the area of precious metals research. I am in search of that. Will I get a chance to do my post doc research under your guidance?

  9. Great collection, Eric, appreciate it. Bookmarked and shared🙂
