“The sell-off on August 11 was too pronounced for this to happen. Following their historic slump in April 2013, prices also embarked initially on a countermovement that took them close to their pre-crash levels before they plunged once again and posted new lows at the end of June,” Commerzbank analyst Carsten Fritsch said.
However, the downturn is projected to be not as long as back in 2013, Fritsch added, touting a very supporting environment for gold.
“As can be seen from the stock markets, prices these days tend to recover from slumps much more quickly than in the past thanks to the massive injections of liquidity by central banks. Gold and silver should also have recouped their losses in the not-too-distant future and begin posting new highs,” he noted. /.
