Daniela Cambone of Kitco News welcomes Frank Holmes back for another edition of Gold Game Film during the shortened holiday week. With inflation on the rise and consumer price index (CPI) data recording its biggest reading in six months in October, Daniela wants Frank’s take on how this might affect gold prices. Frank believes that the biggest issue is whether or not the Federal Reserve will raise rates fast enough to keep up with inflation, because that will be the “savior for gold.”

For Frank’s full thoughts on why CPI data should be a main focus for the gold market, watch the full interview below!
