The renowned World Gold Council has once again taken a close look at the precious metal and played out three economic scenarios. In any case, the high geopolitical tensions, the strong gold purchases by central banks and the fact that 2024 is an election year for many major economies argue for a very well-supported gold price. The World Gold Council considers inflation and the central banks' actions against it to be of great importance for the future gold price. The central banks have taken vigorous action against inflation. Inflation is now likely to fall further in the majority of industrialized countries and an end to interest rate hikes is imminent.
Global economic growth is weakening, and recessions are possible. Positive factors for the gold price include a slight recession, slightly falling profits and a weakening of the US dollar. Geopolitical crises also have an effect, as gold is seen as a hedge. China's economic growth is generally expected to improve, which in turn will fuel demand for gold. What could hinder a higher gold price is a possible, but not very likely, strong tightening of monetary policy by the central banks. The pressure on commodities caused by weaker economic activity could also affect gold and thus have a negative impact on the price.
However, gold is not so easy to grasp in economic terms. This is because it is a hedge that can be interpreted differently by investors. However, according to the World Gold Council, a global recession is still to be expected, which should drive investors increasingly towards gold investments. All in all, investments in physical gold and gold shares are simply part of a balanced portfolio.
