Market Updates*

  • Vaccine news and the stimulus bill has created an outlook for strong economic growth, which dampens our near-term outlook for gold.
  • We expect catalysts to emerge in the second half of 2021, which may include excessive inflationary expectations, continued Central Bank asset purchases and rising commodity prices. Our long-term bull market view for gold remains intact.
  • Gold companies remain a compelling value buy, in our view. Balance sheets continue to get stronger and miners are remaining disciplined in their capital investment.
