Weekly Gold Analysis
Even though the strength of the global ounce uptrend has weakened, buyers still support the precious metal. Analysts are assessing the rate of economic growth due to government financial and support packages, as well as the possibility of intensifying inflationary pressures. However, according to Kitco News' weekly assessment, small investors and market participants expect future inflation to determine the trend in the gold market and ultimately push up the price of an ounce of global gold.
This week, 15 Wall Street activists took part in a weekly Kitco poll. Sixty percent of respondents predict that this week's trend will be an upward ounce of global gold. Another 20 percent predict that the market will decline and the remaining 20 percent predict that the market will be trendless. Meanwhile, 1,581 Main Street investors took part in an online poll. 67% are in favor of an uptrend, 17% are in favor of a downtrend and about 15% are in favor of a trend-free market.
The upward return of the global ounce of gold from $ 1,800 support has caused optimism among market participants. The market reacted positively to this support at the beginning of last week, but the price of an ounce of global gold continued to fall slightly. However, the gold market ended last week's trading in the $ 1855 range. Although the gold market failed to show strong momentum in early 2021, many analysts still do not want to be disappointed with the rise in gold prices, especially as the new US administration seeks to approve a $ 1.9 trillion financial package.
