Gold stayed inside the trading range it has been in for the last eight weeks, closing last week at the lower end of the range at $1,688.00 per ounce. This consolidation can now provide support for another run-up in the current gold bull market. Assuming that we get more upward moves, the question then becomes how much further gold prices will rise in the future. Based on a comparison of past highs, GraniteShares CEO Will Rhind says he believes the gold rally still has legs, telling Yahoo Finance , “You go all the way back to 1980, which was the previous high in gold before the high we reached in 2011, and in 1980 gold prices reached about $800 an ounce. So inflation adjusted, that price is about $2,500 today. If you look at the all-time high for gold we’re nowhere near that today. And in 2011, the nominal all-time high was over $1,900. Remember gold has not gotten back to that level even right now. So from that perspective, gold is not like other asset classes that are trading at or near all-time highs. So, I think there’s still room to go.” Rick Andrews is president of Avant Capital Management.
