Resources Policy, 2020, vol. 66, issue C

Abstract: This paper attempts to offer a careful and robust analysis of the hedging potential of gold against oil shocks. This objective is achieved by using the new datasets for oil shocks constructed by Baumeister and Hamilton (2019) and employing alternative techniques for robustness. The various empirical analyses rendered in this study do not seem to favour the use of gold as a hedge against oil shocks regardless of the nature of oil shock and empirical technique used.
