Gold price in a tug of war

Rising interest rates are negative news for precious metals, but when other investment channels become unsafe, gold can be a safe haven.

According to the weekly Kitco News survey, Wall Street analysts expect gold prices to move sideways in the near term, while individual investors still expect the precious metal to go up.

Of the 15 Wall Street analysts polled by Kitco News for gold, nearly half expect prices to move sideways next week, more than 30% predict bullish, and the rest expect prices to fall.

With 1,145 individual investors, 56% expect gold prices to rise next week, 24% see prices falling to a neutral 19%.

Forecasts show the possibility that the Fed will have another rate hike at the end of the year to keep inflation in check. Despite this hawkish stance, the gold price is still holding its position.

However, Cieszynski’s view is neutral on gold in the near term as the precious metal remains between the $1,800 support and the $1,880 resistance an ounce.

David Madden, Market Analyst at Equity Capital, said gold is stuck in a certain threshold. “Rising interest rates are bad news for gold, but it’s also bad news for equities. Investors exiting the stock market may want to hedge some of their wealth in the precious metal. this”.

Experts also reaffirmed the precious metal’s role as a haven against inflation. This has also been mentioned by experts many times since central banks pumped record money into the economy.

Adam Button, Head of Currency Strategy at, said: “In this downturn, investors have nowhere to hide. Gold will still outperform most assets. When the Fed pauses or governments start spending again, gold will cross the $2,000 mark.”
