Solid gold market
The start for gold into the current year was good. Demand was high in the first quarter of 2022, as ETF inflows were strong, up 34 percent year-over-year. Gold is in demand as a hedge in these uncertain times, both economically and geopolitically, according to the World Gold Council. In the first quarter of 2022, demand for gold coins and bars was 11 percent above the five-year average. The first quarter of 2021 had been stronger, but now the lockdowns in China were having an impact. This situation in China, together with fewer celebrations in India, resulted in somewhat lower jewelry demand (seven percent less than in the first quarter of 2021).
The technology sector recorded growth, and the first three months brought a four-year high. Central banks are also always of interest. They more than doubled their net purchases compared with the previous quarter. Egypt and Turkey in particular made additional purchases. Overall, total demand for gold rose by four percent year-on-year. So, gold continues to be a precious metal that is increasingly demanded in times of crisis. Inflation, supply chain problems, the Ukraine war and the aftermath or effects of the pandemic will not be off the table anytime soon. In March, the price of the precious metal was already close to an all-time high, and perhaps a new all-time high is not far off. The outlook for the gold price should therefore remain very good. This leads to positive effects on gold companies. The following companies should be taken a look at:
