Generalist Investors Warming Up To Gold

At the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference 2020, just before participating on a panel of gold experts, Frank Holmes spoke with Kitco News’ Daniela Cambone. Now that there is initial peace in the U.S.-China trade war, Frank thinks this will be positive for both countries and positive for gold demand. Giving this interview just before Chinese New Year, Frank reminds investors about the Love Trade, where gold-gift giving is considered auspicious during holidays in China and India – a huge source of gold jewelry demand since the two countries account for 40 percent of the world’s population.

Frank is bullish on gold in 2020, citing strong central bank buying globally to support currencies. Gold could move even higher if generalist investors participate, which they haven’t yet. “If you’re not long, you’ll be wrong.”
