Joining Kitco News via Toronto, Frank Holmes discusses with Daniela Cambone why gold is rallying and how analysts are boosting price forecasts. On what’s driving the yellow metal’s current price action, Frank says that negative-to-record low interest rates around the world are a big force: “Gold always rallies when rates start collapsing like this globally.” The metal is also driven by safe haven demand on fears of the coronavirus spreading and disrupting economic growth.

Also getting a bounce from the global health emergency fears are cryptocurrencies. Frank points out that Chinese bitcoin miners aren’t working because of lockdowns, which has reduced supply and boosted prices.

As always, Frank recommends at 10 percent portfolio weighting in gold, called the Golden Rule, with exposure to both gold stocks and physical gold in the form of 24k jewelry or bars and coins. For the full story watch the Kitco News interview below.
