VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're $60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
