The focus is to detect if gold acts as a safe haven or a hedge asset in times of distress. The Threshold GARCH (TARCH) model was utilized. The analysis used daily data for the period 2005-2014. The data for selling prices of gold was represented by selling prices derived from Precious Metals and Diamonds Markets (PMDM).
