Gold price rises above 1600 euros for the first time

Gold bars and bullion coins

Frankfurt The gold price reached a new record high in euros on Thursday. For the first time, the price for one troy ounce (31.1 grams) exceeded the 1600 euro mark. In the meantime, it was up to 1603 euros. Gold was traded in US dollars at $ 1,725. The record high of $ 1900, reached in 2011, is still a long way off.

Gold demand is driven above all by the high level of uncertainty surrounding the corona pandemic. Gold is considered crisis protection for some investors. In addition, there is a surge in debt at the state level – a consequence of the massive countermeasures to contain the pathogen Sars-CoV-2.

Some forecasters therefore expect inflation to rise in the medium or longer term. Gold is also popular as a hedge against inflation. A number of banks and asset managers have therefore adjusted their gold price forecast upwards in recent days and weeks.

On Thursday, the gold price also broke out of a rather atypical pattern that has dominated the precious metal markets in recent weeks. As Carlo Alberto de Casa, chief analyst at the brokerage firm ActiveTrades, observes, gold has recently moved in line with the stock markets.

Silver hardly benefits

With stronger selling waves on the stock exchanges, the gold price came under pressure. Gold prices, on the other hand, rose when investors also bet on stocks. In the past, the gold price had developed in the opposite direction to the share price.

From de Casa’s point of view, the current level of gold prices is favorable for a continuation of the price increase. The round $ 1,700 mark has skipped the precious metal significantly. “That could open the room for another rally.”

In contrast, the silver price has not kept pace. The much-noticed gold-silver ratio, i.e. the value of one ounce of gold, expressed in silver ounces, is again close to the record high. Currently, an ounce of gold costs as much as 113 ounces of silver. Therefore, from the analysts’ point of view, silver is the Bank of America (BofA) undervalued.

“Silver prices of around $ 15 an ounce are difficult to justify,” they write in a study published on Thursday. The investment demand for silver has recently picked up again. Both physically deposited index funds as well as silver coins and bars have recently been in greater demand. BofA analysts are therefore convinced: “Silver could rise to up to $ 20 an ounce in the next twelve months.”

Frankfurt In the past decade, the framework conditions for asset management have been downright paradisiacal. In the “Goldilocks” scenario – where the conditions are fairytale-like – the stock markets hurried to new records, wealth continued to grow, and interest rates close to zero fueled the boom. With the corona pandemic, the brakes came on.
