Gold has been on an absolute tear in 2016, especially considering the currency fears that many had going into the Brexit vote. Now more than ever investors were looking to hedge their portfolios with Gold to protect themselves from the market fallout.

Although the Brexit did pull markets back across the board, everything seemingly recovered and then some after a few trading days. Considering this the Brexit looks to be just one big head fake.
