With more monetary easing from central banks around the world it appears that some investors are fleeing from bonds and stocks to buy gold, which is viewed by investors as a AAA zero-coupon bond and is a safe haven in times of political and economic uncertainty. Gold companies have been prospering from these increased gold prices, with larger players receiving most of the attention. Today we have sifted through and found four Canadian gold stocks that have experienced increased price and volume momentum over the past week. Price and volume momentum are a good indicator of bullishness, as increased share prices on greater volumes show heightened investor interest in a stock.
