The full risk-exposure, potential advantages, and points-of-concern under a Donald Trump presidency have yet to be determined. The stock market and the gold market, thus far, have experienced fluctuation. The uncertainty that accompanied the weeks and months before the election has resurfaced. In particular, investors are watching closely to see what policies the incoming administration will have with regard to trade. Markets are bracing for a much tougher trade policy than we’ve seen in decades. Additionally, it seems as though Trump plans to keep his campaign promise of taxing all imports. This could have major implications for the gold market and the economy, overall.
“Gold has likely entered the early stages of the next bull-run. A major factor are the lingering macro risks. Making the move into gold now is more compelling than ever.”
“Over the next couple of years, we anticipate that gold will move up to $1,900”
“We forecast the gold price to increase through 2016 and believe the $1,500/oz mark could be tested by late 2016 or early 2017 as the macro implications of the Brexit vote are clarified, and the November 8th U.S. election weighs on sentiment.”
