The price of gold could skyrocket up to $ 2,280.  per ounce in 2023, the MUFG predictsThe price of gold is having a hard time going back to $ 1,900. per ounce after it fell below that level in early May. However, analysts from the Japanese investment bank MUFG are convinced that this is only a temporary discount before the rally they forecast of up to $ 2,280. per ounce in Q1 2023.

Gold could reach historic highs within a year, MUFG analysts believe

Gold remains under pressure from the appreciating dollar. The US currency index (DXY) hit 20-year highs as a result of hawkish actions by the Federal Reserve. The yield on US 10-year government bonds also rose to local highs.

– The threat of a downturn is an important foundation for gold as some investors look for safe-haven assets and avoid the more risky ones. – MUFG analysts noted.

The gold supply is returning to stable levels in the wake of the pre-pandemic confusion.

Gold mining in mines is expected to increase by as much as 2% this year, prolonging the 3% increase in production from 2021, which signaled a return to pre-virus disruption, MUFG experts forecast.

Silver will follow gold

Like gold, silver remains in a downward trend due to the same macroeconomic factors such as a moderate dollar appreciation and an increase in profitability.

– In the medium term, silver should benefit from the energy transition demand, especially when used for solar energy. However, given the wider threats to global economic growth in a context of rising interest rates, the short-term outlook may be more challenging. – MUFG analysts commented.

Looking ahead, we believe silver will be slightly outperforming gold thanks to stronger industrial demand, and more broadly, it will benefit from a move towards precious metals as a defensive asset in stagflation conditions. – they added.

The MUFG forecast assumes an increase in the price of an ounce of silver to $ 30. in the first quarter of 2023.
