Gold stocks have enjoyed one heck of a rally over the last 12 months. To think that the price of gold was $1,277 on May 21, 2019 is almost crazy to fathom.

May 21, 2018 to May 21, 2019 saw the price of gold actually decline slightly, overall. While there was a push above $1,300, that was fleeting. In the 2017-2018 period, the price of gold jumped 2% overall. That period was much more volatile, however with prices jumping to over $1,360 and nose-diving to lows of under $1,240.
For the most part, gold prices haven’t seen a consistent uptrend like this since before 2016. What’s the point? Gold has been hibernating for a while now. Given the extended bull market – the longest in history – gold hasn’t had a necessity as a safe-haven. Amid record high after record high and strong global economies, safe-haven gold stock took a back seat. But like Rudy, they’ve recently come into the limelight.

What’s In Store For Gold Stocks?
While others like Yamana gold stock (AUY Stock Report) and even Equinox Gold stock (EQX Stock Report) fell victim to this late-week decline this probably isn’t the end for gold. Analysts are expecting much more out of gold. That’s not unwarranted either in my opinion.

Shaun Djie, Digix co-founder and COO recently had some things to say addressing the future of gold. As far as gold bulls are concerned, these may be words to keep in mind.
My personal view on gold is very bullish. Prices have a lot more room to grow from here. Currently, we are seeing levels of $1,750, but gold can potentially climb closer to $1,800 or $1,900 even in the next quarter…In the next 10 years, gold will continue to be volatile. Gold would trade anywhere between the levels of $3,000 or $4,000 in the next ten years.”
