Gold Surges Amid Geopolitical Crises

When it comes to predicting the potential of precious metals, few groups do this as efficiently and as thoroughly as the U.S. Money Reserve. Providing a very high level of service at an impressive volume, this group excels at distributing U.S. government coins.

They take their work very seriously, as any enterprise that involves dealing with American investments must be strictly analyzed and regulated. Therefore, when they speak about the future of precious metals, people tend to listen.

Recently, the U.S. Reserve’s Chief Numismatist John Rothans publicly reviewed some of the indicators and other factors that potential gold investors can look to when analyzing whether or not gold investments might be a good fit for them in 2018.

His outlook on 2108 tends to be quite sunny when it comes to gold, however. A combination of factors have blended to create what seems to be a potentially hospitable situation for gold investors.

First, the fact that gold enjoyed a good year in 2017 should be illuminating to those who are thinking about investing now. Although last year was a bit shaky for geopolitics, with regions such as North Korea and the Middle East heating up, gold remained relatively steadfast amid the uncertain times.

This seems to suggest that it will continue to remain a good bet in 2018. Additionally, with gold mines not meeting a high demand driven by the need for gold in electronic components, prices may soar.

As India and China surge forward in the global markets, their citizens have more disposable income to spend on items such as phones and gold jewelry. All of this points to what could be a very good year for gold indeed.

Of course, for those who watch the markets, the fact that the U.S. dollar is sluggish also happens to be great news for gold investors. Historically, whenever this happens, gold tends to surge. Read more: US Money Researve | Instagram and US Money Reserve | LinkedIn

However, Rothans is far from the only currency expert to speak out about gold. Other individuals, some of whom work for esteemed financial organizations such as Goldman Sachs are also stating that they believe gold will climb up to around $1,400 per ounce in 2018. Although forecasts vary as to when this will likely occur, the assessment seems to prevail industry-wide.
