Gold’s Fluctuations and Market Dynamics: A Closer Look

Gold hits 12 month high, falls back slightly on profit taking

2023 could be a great year for investing in precious metals!. Get informed on why now is the time to invest and grow your portfolio. Gold futures have dominated the attention of market traders with continued strong gains. Some of the pull back may also be due to the upcoming FOMC next rate hike. They can only pause or raise, with the number being ¼% increase. The uncertainty of the short-term direction in price is also the current banking crisis that is spreading globally to include Credit Suisse, Switzerland.

Banking Crisis and Market Impact: Interplay of Global Factors

The US Federal Reserve and the Swiss National Bank allowed UBS AG, a long-time rival, to borrow up to 100 billion francs backed by a federal default guarantee. Currently the swiss franc is trading slightly above the US$, so the equivalent is about 107 billion US. A loan. With a federal default guarantee. By the way, UBS bought Credit Suisse for $3.2 billion in an all-stock purchase.

This is sounding very familiar and makes us wonder why these institutions are too big to fail or stand on their own in a free enterprise market place. They are publicly traded companies. The talk of protecting Switzerland’s reputation as a financial center? We will have to wait and see what other surprises are going to unwrap in the next few days and weeks. Expect a lot more big stories to unfold in the banking sector.

Market Movements and Dollar Influence: Gold’s Recent Performance

Dollar weakness added in the last 24 hrs added $10.50 of value to the price of gold followed by $21.40 of selling pressure resulting in the decline in price. Gold settled in at $1985 +- $5.00. 2022 was the year of the dollar. 2023 will be the year of the metals, we are expecting a pretty good year.

The price of gold will be above $2400 in 2023. This is not the supply and demand economics of 15 to 20 years ago that talked about production from the mines, jewelry, and derivatives. The price of precious metals will be driven by direct investment made by international banks, bullion dealers and refiners on behalf of their clients.

Investor Behavior and Precious Metals: Market Reactions to Shifting Trends

The retail investor looking to diversify his portfolio or IRA will move into precious metals in a big way once the reality of high inflation and weak equities sets in. There is still a lot of clouded thinking regarding the stock market and hiding behind cash. When you feel inflation eating away at your purchasing power and your actual savings there will be a big push into precious metals. Human nature will keep people on the sidelines at $2000 and ounce and loving it at $2300 an ounce, we see it all the time.

Gold up 20 to 25 % . Call it $2400 to $2500
