Gold will not drop below the $2,000 (£1,548) mark before the end of 2020, economics research specialist Capital Economics has forecast.

This comes after gold prices hit record highs this past summer, topping the previously unprecedented $2,000-an-ounce mark and then continuing to climb higher.

Now, gold prices have dropped slightly since then but Capital Economics predicts that they will remain above the $2,000 milestone through the year’s end.


It even said that there is potential for growth to $2,100-an-ounce (£1,626) and beyond.
