“Amid rapidly rising interest rates, gold has little to offer as a non-interest-bearing investment, especially as the strong US dollar is weighing additionally on its price. This is why many ETF investors are continuing to withdraw their holdings.”
“Next week could see a small countermovement to the upside. However, no lasting turnaround can be expected until an end to the rate hikes is in sight.”
