As reported on Tuesday, the forecast hinges on the speculated rate cuts that are expected to bolster gold prices.
The economists have, however, revised their year-end estimate downwards to $1,900 from the initial $2,000. Despite this adjustment, they maintain their projection that gold will reach an unprecedented $2,100 by the end of 2024.
They also stated that despite imminent signs of a US economic slump from next spring, the forecast for Gold price to scale an unprecedented $2,100 by 2024 remains firm. This recession is projected to trigger rate cut speculation, thus boosting Gold’s value. The Gold recovery trajectory is predicted to commence at a lower point and later than first thought.
