- All signs point to gold cooling down, consolidating in the short run before rallying again toward the end of the year and into 2022
- An increase in demand for silver is likely, stemming primarily from the Biden administration’s $2 trillion climate plan
- MONI is investing in a well-diversified acquisition portfolio of income-generating businesses, with precious metals being a key component
The economic uncertainty of the past 18 months has touched almost every aspect of the financial world, including the precious metals space, with prices fluctuating wildly. Although it’s difficult to know what’s in store for gold, silver, and platinum group metals, the forecast looks fairly good. Moon Equity Holdings (OTC: MONI), an investment company that focuses on acquisitions in the fintech, crypto, precious metals, and real estate sectors, is watching market developments closely.
“The yellow metal had a strong run last year with an annual price increase of 24%,” reported a “Forbes” article, which was cited as an aggregate of expert opinions in the industry (https://ibn.fm/cmVQM). “On January 2, gold opened at $1,521, and it closed on December 31 at $1,895. This constitutes the best year-over-year growth for gold since 2010.
“All signs point to gold cooling down and consolidating in the short run before rallying again toward the end of the year and into 2022,” the article continued, noting that Citigroup predicts a price target of $2,500 by year end and that gold prices would most likely surge if the Fed was forced to raise the federal funds rate to combat rising inflation. “Investors interested in gold will likely want to buy now if they believe the conditions that drove 2020’s bull run — equity market volatility, a weaker dollar, and a low-interest-rate environment — will continue through 2021. It’s important to note, though, that gold prices have fallen in the first couple of months of this year.
Forbes also stated that an increase in demand for silver is likely, stemming primarily from the Biden administration’s $2 trillion climate plan. “Silver alloys are used extensively in the production of solar panels and photovoltaic (PV) cells,” they noted. “In fact, in 2019, 100 million ounces of silver was used to construct PV cells worldwide, though business intelligence company CRU Group predicted that to be the peak for silver demand in PV panels.”
Furthermore, Forbes also reported that some analysts that some analysts are calling for a $50 per troy ounce price target this year. “It seems likely we’ll see consistent price growth over the next three to four years as the policy environment favors silver.”
Finally, Forbes notes how precious metals within the platinum group, including rhodium, ruthenium, osmium, iridium, palladium, and platinum, “are chemically diverse and traditionally represent more volatility than their white and yellow counterparts. Industry analysts believe that industrial demand for platinum groups is high and showing no signs of slowing down. Experts suspect an oversupply of platinum — to the tune of up to 670,000 ounces — is expected to keep the price of palladium significantly higher than platinum in 2021.”
All this bodes well for Moon Equity Holdings, a company that recently rebranded to reflect a revised business strategy. The company is now focused on investing in a well-diversified acquisition portfolio of income-generating businesses looking to produce long-term gains. Precious metals are a vital component of the company’s growing portfolio. Along with seeking to make an impact on technology, MONI is also focused on leveraging its diverse management team — including its all-female advisory board — to create unique solutions that appeal to a wide range of markets in an effort to enhance the customer experience, create a loyal following and generate repeat business.
