How Will Gold Miners Fare In 2017?
Daniela Cambone of Kitco News welcomes Frank Holmes back for another edition of Gold Game Film, starting 2017 with a look back at 2016 performance in the sector. Daniela explains that last year gold miners, as measured by the NYE Arca Gold Miners Index, were up 55 percent, handily beating all other asset classes. So will we see a repeat in 2017?
Frank Holmes says we could. “I think if gold is up 8 percent again you’re going to see gold stocks perform spectacularly well,” he explains. Frank also says there are two driving factors for the yellow metal as we kick off 2017: Demand from the Chinese Lunar New Year and gold’s inverse relationship with 10- and 5-year Treasuries.
