    Why an increase in real interest rates makes gold lose its sheen

    Gold doesn’t give any returns besides appreciation. Appreciation doesn’t always happen. As a result, gold has to compete against assets that yield something. When the return on the alternate assets begins to rise, the demand for gold falls. In a scenario where the real interest rates are rising continuously, the demand for gold—as an investment—will start falling.
