Hodge also discusses the uranium market in this interview, explaining which producers he thinks will come back online first.
The gold price has been trading just below the $1,300-per-ounce mark for most of 2019, managing to breach it midway through last week.
But what will it take to push the yellow metal into a bull market?
According to Nick Hodge, founder of the Outsider Club, the answer is “new blood.”
“It looks like people are ready to come into the space that aren’t currently in the gold space, and that is what is truly needed for a gold bull market,” he said at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference.
“I can buy gold until I’m blue in the face, and everybody in this room can buy gold until they’re blue in the face, but they’re the people that have already been buying gold for the past two decades … you need new blood, you need new capital to come in to truly propel the gold price and the gold stocks higher.”
Hodge said he is beginning to see that interest return, explaining that there are two factors driving attention from non-traditional gold investors: the bitcoin/cryptocurrencies phenomenon and the fact that gold is in the headlines.
Speaking about the former, he commented, “it got [younger people] talking about fiat currency and the fact that the dollar is backed by nothing. And so I think crypto was a good educator into why the dollar isn’t as almighty as some people think.”
