Outlook for gold and silver prices
The U.S. economy needs to improve a lot after the gross domestic product fell by 9.5% in the second quarter. Thus, the Trump administration is expected to issue an additional fiscal stimulus policy for households and enterprises in an attempt to give a boost to consumer spending and to sustain employment levels and business activities.
