Now it's out, US President Joe Biden wants to keep Jerome Powell as US Federal Reserve chairman. Biden knows what he has in Powell. If there are economic difficulties, he will stand by the US with the most powerful central bank in the world. Sufficient liquidity for the next crisis thus seems assured. The fact that the gold price has not reacted positively, but has now even gone into reverse, is due to the alternative. For Biden could also have chosen Lael Brainard. The economist is said to be a, so far secret, follower of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). Whether or not this is true, as Fed chief she should surely have disclosed it. In any case, Brainard is a "super dove", so she is quick to inject money into strained markets.
Thus, for the gold market, Powell is indeed only the second-best solution. But he is not a bad solution for gold fans. Because as I said, it remains guaranteed that fresh money will always be thrown onto the market when necessary. This will also prevent the inflation rate in the US from going down significantly any time soon. Real interest rates will thus also remain low or negative, making the opportunity cost of holding gold negligible. This could, indeed should, attract ever wider circles of institutional and private investors. If an upward trend in gold then sets in again - winter historically offers good months for gold anyway - then more and more investors will also be looking to gold mining stocks. Those who are on this train in time could then profit with leverage on the gold price.
