Gold Is Just Getting Started - Scotiabank
Tuesday, 20 November 2018 05:51 WIB | GOLD CORNER |Gold OutlookGold Corner

Although the gold market has been unable to maintain October's momentum, one Canadian bank is not ready to give up on the precious metals just yet.

Analysts at Scotiabank said that they see further potential for the yellow metal as the bank sees a wave of risk-off sentiment sweep through financial markets and inflation pressures rise, according to its November Metals Matters precious metals report.

œEconomic data has generally been showing weakness, including some U.S. data, and economic bellwethers such as the base metals have remained under pressure as the U.S. trade disputes have dragged on, the analysts said. œGold has turned more favorable as other markets have started to become more risk-averse. As such, there does seem to be room for more safe-haven demand for gold as money rotates out of equity and bond markets.

The comments come as gold prices continue to hold above a critical support level at $1,220 an ounce; December gold futures last traded at $1,223.70 an ounce, relatively unchanged on the day. Meanwhile, equity markets struggle to find momentum with the S&P 500 last trading at 2,704 points, down nearly 1% on the day.

The analysts noted that along with economic uncertainty, geopolitical instability surrounding global trade issues will continue to support inflationary pressures, which could help gold fight against ongoing strength in the U.S. dollar.

œGold prices and the dollar have generally both been strong in October, so further dollar strength may not be too strong a headwind for gold from these still generally low price levels, the analysts said. œWe said in the October Metal Matters report, we may not be that far from a turning point in gold prices “ this may well now have happened.
