Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Nowyoutu.be

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ...

Gold's performance has disappointed some market participants this year, but according to Dr. Kal Kotecha of Junior Gold Report, the yellow metal is holding up well compared to other assets.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Kotecha said that looking back over the last 20 years, gold has outperformed major indexes like the S&P 500 (INDEXDJX:.DJI).
