Daniela Cambone of Kitco News welcomes Frank Holmes back for another edition of Gold Game Film, on a day when gold prices are moving higher and holding strong. So what’s pushing the metal up? Frank says there are a number of things at play, but a lot has to do with President-elect Donald Trump, particularly his upcoming inauguration on Friday. In addition, Frank points out that real interest rates remain a major mover for the metal, adding that consumer price index (CPI) data will be released Wednesday, along with demand from Chinese New Year celebrations.
