Gold demand is increasing, leading to a rise in its market value.
Increased market expectations about the end of the Federal Reserve’s tightening cycle will push gold prices to climb higher, according to analysts.
Thus, commodity experts at TD Securities state the continued gold rally due to an expected decline in Fed interest rates this and next year.
At the same time, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank Ole Hansen considers today’s stance of Fed Chairman Powell is not quite optimistic for gold. However, geopolitical tensions, the ongoing banking crisis, stable demand for the metal from central banks, high inflation and the dedollarization trend will support gold in the long term.
Senior market analyst at OANDA Edward Moya believes that gold’s strength is significant. According to financial indicators, serious consequences for the real economy might follow, supporting increased demand for safe-haven assets.
As for the next target for gold after the update of its record value, the experts target the level of $2100 per ounce.

The number of employees is projected to decline to the level of 180,000, which is 56,000 less than before. If the forecast meets expectations or the figure falls even lower, the dollar will weaken and, consequently, strengthen the precious metal price.
