The gold price has been on a downtrend so far this year, but its fundamentals remain strong.

“This is the time when all the fundamentals for gold are great, and people are scratching their head as to what’s going on,” said EB Tucker, who is a director at both Metalla Royalty & Streaming (TSXV:MTA,NYSEAMERICAN,MTA) and Nova Royalty (TSXV:NOVR,OTC Pink:NVARF).

“Gold, royalty companies, maybe some of the big miners. This is the trade.”

Tucker expects to see gold at US$2,500 per ounce in 2021 and silver at US$50 per ounce, but he emphasized that investors should focus on building wealth, not on trying to guess where prices may go.

“This is a huge, once-in-a-generation bull market — huge. This is a huge, huge commodities cycle bull market, and you’re hung up on guessing the price of an ounce of gold?” he said.

Aside from gold and silver, Tucker spoke about what’s driving copper and nickel prices.

In terms of copper, he said demand for the red metal is increasing while end users are becoming pickier about supply. What’s more, copper deposits simply aren’t that easy to bring into production.

“It’s not like gold — gold you can find 2, 3 million ounce deposits, they’re all over the place. You can put them into production fairly quickly, you can do this. With copper these are gigantic, multibillion dollar, 20, 30, 40 year mine life projects. These are huge undertakings,” he said.

Looking at nickel, Tucker is optimistic about future battery demand, and said he believes the metal is still in the early stages of its run. “As an investor what you want to do is play (cycles). If there’s a new technology that’s super early, you can start looking at it, but nickel is just in first gear — so what you want to do is ride that trend,” he explained.
