(Kitco News) - Gold has seen a steady uptrend, but investors should still pay careful attention to macroeconomic forces, says Juan Carlos Artigas, director of investment research at the World Gold Council.
“There are four drivers of gold that investors need to keep an eye on. The first one is economic expansion. There’s a positive link between economic growth and gold over the long run,” Artigas told Kitco News.
Other drivers of gold include risk and uncertainty in the market place, interest rates and the dollar, and momentum, says Artigas.
