Gold shines brighter than the sun   

04 January 2021: Gold is also starting the new year with a bang as the precious metal has surged more than 1.2% and hit a high of $1925. Multiple factors are likely to continue lending support for Gold in the upcoming months. The pandemic will not disappear in a matter of weeks with tougher lockdowns also expected as Covid cases continue to rise. Hence central banks will need to keep policy loose by expanding their balance sheets. And given we are starting 2021 with extraordinarily rich valuations in equity markets, Gold is a must-have asset in portfolios. I think it is only a matter of time before we cross back above $2,000 and I won't be surprised if new highs are recorded in the first quarter of 2021.
