Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Bounces Back, Experts Talk Recession Question

Weekly August 5youtu.be

After dipping briefly below the US$1,700 per ounce mark in mid-July, gold is bouncing back.

The yellow metal has made a big move since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, nearly making it to US$1,800. It was back down around US$1,775 at the time of this writing on Friday (August 5) afternoon.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of IndependentSpeculator.com told me is unsurprising.

Gold has seen ups and downs this summer, but is solidly below its Q1 peak of over US$2,000 per ounce.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium in Florida, Rick Rule, the host of the event and proprietor at Rule Investment Media, said he sees the lack of interest in the yellow metal as positive.

"The fact that people are disinterested in gold, and disinterested in resources, I think is a wonderful thing because they're on sale," he explained, reminding listeners that he favors a contrarian approach to the markets.

Is Gold a Buy? Jim Cramer Says Timing Looks "Perfect"

As volatility reigns supreme across equity markets, many analysts are saying that gold’s fall below US$1,800 per ounce means it’s a good time to buy before the price goes up.

Gold's dip under that threshold began at the beginning of July, and is the first time the yellow metal has slipped below and held at that level since late 2021. The decline comes after gold breached US$2,000 in early March.

Many market participants remain resolute that it’s only a matter of time before gold regains its lost momentum, and that sentiment was echoed on Wednesday (August 3) by well-known TV personality Jim Cramer during the "Off the Charts" segment of his “Mad Money” investing show on CNBC.

Australia has a rich history in mining. One of the biggest gold rushes took place in New South Wales, Australia in 1851, which later extended to the province of Victoria. Today, Victoria and its successful gold mines stand as some of the highest-yielding and high-grade resources.
