What the experts believe
Some believe that the value of money along with the increasing disputes internationally will prove that the safest investment is actually gold. Gold investing is an investment that can reduce the risk that will prevail in markets according to these individuals.
Gold prices remaining resilient, with the Fed, the central US bank ending its hike cycle and cutting interests rates by 0.25%. A rate cut along with slowing economic growth will limit the upside in the US dollar and lower the opportunity cost for holding non-yielding assets like gold.
Investor and Expert predictions
It’s clear to see also that renewed trade tensions have started affecting business sentiment and this will have negative implications on corporate earnings, plus bring equity market volatility back.
Another point is that if a US-China trade deal is reached, it will reduce the risks to the global economy and lower rates by central banks but this is unlikely as tensions are likely to remain in the foreseeable future.
In time investors will need to change their reasoning for future investment moves. The devaluation of currencies will reduce the value of fiat currencies and ultimately restrict real returns for investors. The time for these changes is unknown but very close.
