Bond yields weigh on gold price
Yields on ten-year government bonds have risen to over three percent, the highest level in more than three years. At the same time, a firm U.S. dollar caused a loss in the price of gold. In addition, there are strong expectations of interest rate hikes. Nevertheless, Commerzbank, for example, has raised its gold price expectations. By the end of the year, Commerzbank analysts expect a gold price of 1,900 U.S. dollars per troy ounce. And for 2023, they expect 2,000 US dollars per ounce of gold.
The price of gold is being driven by inflation, which is likely to remain at a high level in the long term. Should the economic data weaken, interest rate hikes could be lower than assumed. This in turn would strengthen the gold price. In addition to serving as a hedge against inflation, gold is serving as a sought-after safe haven in this time of war in Ukraine. Many asset classes have suffered heavy losses in the first quarter of 2022, while gold has started the new year very well. Currently, although the price of the precious metal has come down again from the record level in 2020 and also from more than USD 2,000 per ounce in March, the outlook for the longer term remains very good. Indeed, not least due to the extreme rise in energy prices, in addition to food prices, inflation has reached record levels in many countries. And real yields are still in negative territory. The U.S. dollar and the gold price usually behave in opposite directions, but this was not the case in March. Although the U.S. dollar rose tremendously, the gold price is gaining almost to record levels, so anything is possible and an investment in gold companies like Tarachi Gold or Skeena Resources is always a good decision.
