The US debt ceiling has already been raised many times. This time, however, the risk of an X-date breach is more substantial than in previous cycles. The X-date refers to the point in time when the U.S. Treasury can no longer pay its liabilities. Domestic payments will certainly be prioritized. If a longer delay in debt service were to occur (one month), then gross domestic product would go down about 0.7 percentage points, and hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost, according to an analysis by UBS, a major Swiss bank. While this scenario is rather unlikely, it cannot be ruled out.
Particularly surprising in this case: US ten-year yields would fall. This would be related to the high liquidity of this investment medium, according to UBS experts. Liquidity beats the manageable default risk in this case. Gold, on the other hand, would also be strengthened. Because in all cases of uncertainty and default, the gold price would perform well. According to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, the X date could fall as early as June 1. At that point, the Treasury may well be unable to meet its payment obligations. The U.S. president can sign a law raising the debt ceiling, in which case the problem would be postponed until September. Originally, the debt ceiling was a convenience. It eliminated the need to approve each individual debt. So overall, again, gold should emerge as the strengthened investment medium, even though gold prices may come under pressure in the meantime. Investors can then use such lower prices to make additional purchases or new investments in the precious metal. Those who are not only looking for security but are also looking for leverage on the gold price, which certainly involves more risk, can turn to the shares of gold companies. Examples are Victoria Gold and Skeena Resources.
