Gold will resume its 2020 rally once US election noise dies down – Royal Bank of Canada

Traders will be looking to “stimulus legislation, inflationary prices [and] large debts, so gold can resume the upward trend towards $2,000,” said George Gero, managing director at RBC Wealth Management, as quoted by MarketWatch.

The precious metal was trading at $1,887 per ounce on Monday, well below the $2,075 level reached in August. Analysts pointed to a stronger US dollar, lower equities and options expiration as the main reasons for the drop.

Some forecasts vary from $2,100 to $2,500 by early 2021. For more stories on economy & finance visit RT’s business section
