How dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions are performing in the current market environment

1st Quarter | 2023

Quarterly recap



Current market environment performance of dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions.

First signal

Last week, gold prices broke through the resistance line, indicating a reversal of trend to the upside as they climbed toward their 50-day moving average. The metal then closed the week at $1,709.30 per ounce.

This turn to the upside was not confirmed by a corresponding breakdown to the downside on the U.S. dollar chart.

While some may consider this a buying opportunity for gold, the current market environment remains unfriendly to the metal.

Gold is likely to have a friendlier market environment in the future once we see inflation rates lowering, allowing the Federal Reserve to be less aggressive with interest-rate hikes. Once that happens, the dollar may become less attractive to investors and reduce the headwind that gold is currently experiencing.
