Kitco News, Released on 10/10/19

Fundamental factors are still in place to push gold prices up, but momentum will not be sustained without price corrections along the way, this according to Peter Hug, global trading director of Kitco Metals.

“If you use tthe argument based on our global debt, [gold bulls are] right, gold should be higher than where it is at $1,500 and I think the day will come when gold will surpass the 2011 high,” Hug told Kitco News.

Peter Hug has been involved in precious metals since 1974. He began gaining first-hand investment industry experience at Deak-Perera. He served as SVP at Guardian Trust Company, which became one of the largest international trading houses for precious metals. He developed the first precious metals certificate program and the first margin trading accounts for metals on the cash market. Peter has acquired extensive experience in the wholesale markets and international asset diversification. A frequent speaker at precious metals conferences and in the financial media, he is one of the handful of experts who have succeeded through multiple bull and bear cycles on the strength and skills honed during the dramatic fluctuations of the 1980s. As the Director of Kitco’s Precious Metals Division, Peter develops newer and better investment options for Kitco customers.
