Hold on to your gold; a Fed rate hike in 2023 could be too little to late for inflation – VanEck’s Joe Foster – by Neils Christensen (Kitco News – July 21, 2021)


(Kitco News) – The gold market continues to struggle as investors focus on the potential for tighter monetary policy and transitory higher inflation pressures.

However, one fund manager says that the rally in the gold market is far from done as there is still plenty of uncertainty to support precious metals prices.

Despite the bullish outlook, the gold market struggles to break through critical resistance levels and is testing support just above $1,800 an ounce.

Although markets are focused on the U.S. central bank reducing its bond purchasing program by the end of the year, Foster said that looking at the big picture, there is still plenty of stimulus being pumped into global financial markets.
