Gold prices are rising in the international markets again, after a short-term fall, after the reappointment of Jerome Powell as the US Fed Chairman. But the PCE and CPI inflation concerns along with worries about the new Covid variant reported in South Africa, are again pushing investors towards gold. The precious metal again proved to be the safe-haven asset during a crisis.
"Not only are economists concerned about a slowing global economy, but any new lockdown measures will add further problems to the current supply disruptions. In other words, there is a growing risk of stagflation," analyst Neils Christensen told Kitco News. "With inflation on the rise, it is not surprising that the Federal Reserve is looking to tighten its monetary policy a little sooner than the end of next year. The pace of tapering could also speed up, but that still doesn't change the current environment," Neils added.
