Gold’s Movement Is a “Non-Event”

After a spectacular run, and followed by a recent correction, Frank Holmes says that gold is currently steadying toward its mean. Daniela Cambone, host of Kitco News, wants to know if these swings in the gold price should be of concern to investors. Frank explains that 70 percent of the time gold can move up or down around 20 percent, over a one-year period. Similarly, he says, the yellow metal can swing up or down 1 percent in a day, or around 5 percent in a month.

Although Frank believes the metal’s fluctuation is a non-event, he does think the Federal Reserve’s next interest rate decision will indeed have an impact on gold. Tune in to the full replay below to hear his thoughts on the matter!
