Frank Holmes Talks Gold, the Global Economy and A.I.

Frank Holmes joined Palisade Radio for a conversation about gold, the global economy, artificial intelligence and more. Frank says that gold has held up remarkably well given rising interest rates, but that due to peak supply, the yellow metal could hit $1,900 an ounce in the next three years. Additionally, rising GDP in key markets like India could spur greater demand for gold jewelry.

Frank also comments that global PMIs are falling. However, if the trade wars are resolved “then we will see PMI bottom, which would set up commodity demand.” Lastly, Frank discusses the growing role of artificial intelligence in the quant world and how it’s impacting capital markets.
