Many gold stocks are rising in value as gold prices go up.
So you’ve decided to put your money into gold stocks. What do you do first? There are many mining stocks to keep an eye on, but gold appears to be the most popular. This has been a common occurrence throughout history. People frequently convert their money into real assets such as gold or silver when the US currency is performing poorly. It’s no surprise, however, that when the pandemic hit last year, it ignited the greatest gold rally in history.
Gold hit all-time highs in mid-2020, but where is it now? The price of gold is currently above $1,800 per ounce and has been for some time. Sure, it’s not as high as it was last year, but it’s still a significant increase for the yellow metal.
This is due to a number of factors. One has to do with inflationary anxieties. Furthermore, the economy has only recently begun to revive, and this is a process that could take years to complete. There was a lot of damage, and it will take a long time to repair it all. As a result, gold is still able to dominate the market for the time being. Some analysts believe it could even increase in value. Let’s take a look at several gold stocks that you might want to keep an eye on this week.
