These 9 Jim Rogers Clips Will Make You Want To Buy Gold

Mar 21, 2024, 5:36 pm GMT

Gold broke through $2,200 late yesterday, peaking at $2,220 before moderating around $2,200. At the time of writing this is where it remains. Silver very nearly stole the limelight from gold, as it rocketed up to $25.63 a near 3% climb. 

The big economic event yesterday was the FOMC announcement, however gold did not react especially dramatically to the initial news that US rates would remain in a range of 5.25% – 5.50%. It was only after the reopen that it leapt up to $2,200, following Powell’s press conference. 

Did it just take a press announcement about US interest rates for gold and silver to start climbing? No, but it was certainly the catalyst to a reaction that has long been taking effect. Gold has been performing very well of late. After all, it wasn’t so long ago that we were remarking that it had broken through $2,100. This is because in the background there is plenty going on to support gold’s rise. It doesn’t take one interest rate announcement to allow gold to find strength. If anything, the yellow metal has become markedly less interested in interest rate announcements in the last year or so. 

One of the big supporters of the gold price in the last couple of years has been central bank demand. World Gold Council research shows many of the reasons for increasing gold reserves ultimately comes down to reducing geopolitical and currency risk. And there was some key news yesterday that is sure to have central banks even more wary about how and where they hold their reserves. 

Yesterday, the EU appeared to ‘find a way’ that would allow frozen Russian Central Bank assets to be used to buy arms for Ukraine – i.e. central bank assets which were frozen are now being repurposed to the benefit of other countries. Aside from where other countries sit on the Russia-Ukraine war, this is likely to sound serious alarm bells. Currently, the ECB prides itself on being a safe haven for other central banks looking to store funds. But now, a precedent is about to be set whereby it is seemingly okay to utilise assets from the central bank of another nation. This completely goes against the role of a safe haven.  

In short, we expect to see increased demand for gold by central banks and this may well have something to do with the climb in price yesterday. Either way, this will no doubt add even more support to the case to own gold. 

Despite gold’s new headline-worthy price, you might still find there are some naysayers in your life who think this is an archaic investment and a waste of time.
