Precious metal investors are still in the pole position, with precious metals having been among the best performers of all asset classes in the Covid 19 crisis. It sounds like a cliché, but gold and silver are once again in demand as "safe havens", as massive inflows into ETFs and sold out bullion traders impressively prove.
In 2020, the price of gold reached a new all-time high of more than US$ 2,000, mainly as a result of (impending) fiscal and geopolitical distortions and a certain degree of security, which will keep the price of the yellow metal at a consistently high level and will certainly drive it even higher. In most currencies, gold was at all-time highs in 2020, a trend that will continue in view of the escalating orgies of money printing by central banks worldwide.
Silver, an industrial metal accounting for more than half of demand, initially had to cope with large price losses, but then a meteoric rise followed. With a gold-silver ratio of 125, this was the end of the road, especially as silver experienced a great surge in demand from the investment sector. In the future, this is probably where the greatest opportunities for growth are to be expected, as silver is finding its way into more and more industrial applications. In addition to the energy sector (explosion of photovoltaic capacities in China!), the automotive sector (use in electric vehicles) as well as the pharmaceutical and medical sectors are particularly noteworthy.
Palladium, too, which in recent months had been driven to new record highs of up to US$ 2,780 an ounce, mainly for speculative reasons, only had to take a short sinking and was recently already trading above the US$ 2,200 mark again. Demand from the automotive sector (use in gasoline catalytic converters) plays a major role here.
