Top Gold Stocks To Buy Or Sell
There are plenty of things currently affecting the price of gold. The first of which is that new vaccine news we have all heard by now. Pfizer (PFE Stock Report) and Moderna (MRNA Stock Report) both separately announced vaccines that are 95% effective. Now it is being reported by many publications that a vaccine could become publicized by December 11th. The places expected to receive the vaccine this early is the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
This news caused gold prices to go under $1,850, which analysts predicted would not happen. This news is negative for gold, yet investors still are looking at it positively. People think that the vaccine can’t be widely distributed quickly. It is not known for sure, placing gold and other precious metals in a volatile position. The election also affected gold prices as well. The inauguration in January could have an interesting effect on the direct in which gold prices move. With all of this volatility in the gold market, things can get confusing. So let’s look at some gold stocks that could potentially be on your watch list this month.
