Gold is trading at its highest price in a year, and the yellow metal might already have the fuel to test levels last seen in 2013.
…“All of the ingredients to break $1,400 are there—our debt is out of control and our deficit could skyrocket, especially with infrastructure plus military spending” on the back of a possible confrontation with North Korea, said Jeb Handwerger, editor of GoldStockTrades.com, which offers a newsletter focusing on mining exploration companies.
“We could be maybe weeks away from that $1,400 breakout, which could signal a new uptrend in gold not seen in many years,” he said. Gold prices haven’t traded above $1,400 since 2013. They also hit a high of about $1,687 that year.
Handwerger pointed out that a “major breakout” at $1,400 for gold could “lead to a reversal of the outperformance of stocks over gold into a market that favors precious metals and commodities over stocks.”
