Investing News, Released on 2/21/23 (Recorded on 2/14/23)
The gold price has dropped off in February, but remains much higher than it was just a few months ago. Even so, many investors are wondering then the yellow metal will reach a new all-time high. For Gary Wagner, executive producer at TheGoldForecast.com, inflation is the main factor to keep an eye on.
“The key is that the shift will come when market participants focus on inflation not being reduced to the level they thought it was, or at the rate (they thought) it was. And it will be due to some items being sticky — in other words, (the US Federal Reserve doesn’t) have the tools to control it. If that occurs, we will see gold take off,” he said.
