Gold may still be a good bet.

Last trading at $1,971.52, gold could see $2,500 this year, says Goldman Sachs.

According to Jeff Currie, Goldman Sachs global head of commodities research, as quoted by Bloomberg, “One, you have strong investor demand for gold over concerns about inflation, recessions, and downturn in places like Europe. The second leg is central bank buying … and with the situation in Russia, they’re likely to accumulate dollars in reserves they can’t do anything with. What can they do with it? Buy gold.”

Plus, inflation data is supporting gold, too.

In addition, “Gold prices still have room to move higher even as the Federal Reserve and other central banks around the world tighten their monetary policies, according to the latest outlook from VanEck,” as reported by

“In a report published Monday, Joe Foster, portfolio manager, and Imaru Casanova, deputy portfolio manager, for the investment firm’s gold strategy, said that although the Federal Reserve is looking to aggressively raise interest rates this year, including two 50-basis point hikes at the next two meetings, rising inflation will continue to keep real interest rates low through 2022.”
