Yahoo! Finance welcomes Frank Holmes to discuss the Federal Reserve’s stimulus program, better known as quantitative easing (QE), to find out how this might affect the price of gold in 2014. Frank says it all depends on where inflation goes from here; last year inflation fell from 1.7 to 1.2, and now it’s pushing back up against 1.7. Inflation is inversely related to real interest rates, and if real interest rates are negative, historically the gold price moves up.

Watch the interview now to see what Frank says about physical gold demand out of Asia and how he recommends investors allocate their portfolios to gold.
