The gold prices could persist to climb even after they strike a multi-year high in the last week, an international investment strategist stated. David Roche—Global Strategist and President at London-based Independent Strategy—predicted that prices are placed to “attain $2,000 by the end of this year.” The spot gold prices strike $1,422.85 on June 25, which is their highest in over 6 Years. In the last week, gold futures climbed at their highest ever since August 2013, attaining $1,417.70. The gold prices have surged in the middle of recent anticipations of a Fed (Federal Reserve) interest rate curb and escalated geopolitical concerns, conditions that may affect the stock market, as per to Roche. “I essentially believe financial markets are now balanced to disintegrate like a sand pile,” he said to CNBC.
Nonetheless, gold prices declined slightly, potentially countering to the US’ declaration on Friday that it had reported stronger-than-anticipated nonfarm payrolls. That report raged financiers’ anticipations of a Fed rate curb. Regardless of that, Roche estimated gold prices will persist to go up, in part owing to global trade tensions that will add to the pessimistic sentiment of stock market financiers. He said, “I feel the trade disagreement with the U.S. is a much far, broader-reaching and international conflict, which would weaken growth anticipations in equity markets.”
On a similar note, recently, copper extended dropdowns on bearish China demand. The prices of copper on the LME (London Metal Exchange) decreased in recent time, poised for a third uninterrupted drop, on apprehensions over poor demand for the ductile metal from major consumer China. In fact, 3-Month copper on the LME was dropped by 0.5% at $5,865.50 per tons; whilst the most-traded copper bid on the Shanghai Futures Exchange attained a 3-Week low of $6,699.99 (46,110 yuan) per tons.
