The gold price reached its lowest point in March at around 1,680 US dollars, a long way from its high in January at 1,950 US dollars per troy ounce. Since the spring, the gold price has hovered between 1,750 and 1,830 US dollars. One factor that weighed on the gold price was the significant appreciation of the US dollar. Also, ten-year U.S. Treasury bonds have gone up over the course of the year. Looking at the price of the precious metal in euro terms, however, it hit a 14-month high in November.
But there are positive aspects. For example, gold jewellery demand has recovered significantly, not only in India and China, but also in Western countries. Incomes have risen and what was postponed at the beginning of the pandemic, such as weddings, have been made up for. Continued high inflation rates and significantly negative real yields should help the price of gold to rebound. Demand for gold coins and bars is high this year and, in contrast to last year, central banks have also been happy to buy again this year. Here, industry experts expect further purchases by central banks in the coming year as well. After all, gold's suitability for diversification is well known. And the central banks are striving to reduce the US dollar portion of their reserves. Important for the development of the gold price should be whether the gold ETFs will be able to record inflows again. Here, the further sentiment in the US equity markets will be a factor. In any case, a few gold stocks in the portfolio could not hurt. For example, Maple Gold Mines or Skeena Resources.
