On this week’s Gold Game Film with Kitco News, Daniela Cambone asks Frank Holmes what investors should be watching to see where the gold price could go this week. Frank acknowledges that the strong U.S. dollar continues to push gold prices lower, but makes a case for the yellow metal on the back of research from the World Gold Council that shows a 1 percent increase in GDP has lifted jewelry consumption by around 5 percent – a positive for gold.

Frank continues the discussion with other positive signs for gold including the demand strength it has seen again in India and even in Russia despite ongoing political tensions. Check out the entire replay to hear more reasons why Frank holds his bullish position on gold.
