Globally, City Research predicts that gold prices will rise in the medium term and may exceed $ 2000 an ounce in 2021 as central bank cuts to interest rates and blurry macroeconomic expectations have boosted demand for safe haven.
“Interest rates and monetary policy of the Federal Reserve are two main drivers of the outlook for the rise of the gold market and will remain structural support in the medium term,” City said in a note.
