Gold price outlook

On May 27, gold closed at a price of $1,694.60 per troy ounce on the London bullion market and $1,710.70 per troy ounce on the Comex futures contracts, having gained about 11% so far this year.

According to my estimation, the precious metal will likely trade higher in the weeks ahead, potentially hitting $1,800 per troy ounce as it continues to be used as a safe haven asset against elevated volatility in the markets.

For one, the path for the U.S. economy to get out of recessionary conditions could take longer than expected as high amounts of

The miner is strongly positioned to benefit from the rally in the gold price

Gold price outlook

Gold closed at $1,671.75 per troy ounce on the London bullion market on Monday, hitting a 7-year high during intraday in response to a sell-off in the equities market worldwide as the coronavirus outbreak has raised fears for a global economic slowdown.

Now the precious metal, which is seen as a safe-haven asset, is up 9.5% year to date and 25.7% over the past 12 months.

Gold is forecasted to uptrend through 2020 as higher volatility and uncertainty arise due to trade conflicts and sluggish demand in key economies.

The Canadian gold producer has several catalysts

The spread between the two-year and 10-year Treasury note yield curve inverted for the first time since 2007 on Tuesday, pushing gold prices and shares of several mining stocks higher as the inversion signals a potential recession.

Gold and its publicly traded producers are safe-haven assets as they provide a shield against economic downturns.

We will likely see more upside in the share price of gold mining stocks in the coming weeks.

Therefore, in order to make the best out of this gold bull market, it is wise to increase positions in operators that are outperforming the industry.

The Fosterville mine in Australia will lead organic growth

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (KL) jumped 2.27% to $24.34 on Tuesday after posting production targets for 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The Canadian miner is targeting substantial production growth to 740,000 to 800,000 ounces in full fiscal 2019, up from 655,000 to 670,000 ounces forecasted for full fiscal 2018. The Fosterville mine in Australia and the Macassa mine in Canada will drive the improvement in production.

The miner has produced the precious metal from higher ore grades for some time at Fosterville, and especially at Macassa, and will continue to do so over the coming years.

The miner performed strongly in spite of lower gold prices

But the stock is not a buy

With a share price of $18.80, Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (KL) was flat on Tuesday despite the release of strong results on gold production for the third quarter of 2018. The share price jumped only 0.21% from the previous close.

Third quarter results tell that the use of a second gravity circuit and the processing of high-grade gold ore from the first Swan Zone stope at the Fosterville mine in Australia enabled Kirkland Lake Gold to achieve record quarterly production of the precious metal. Also, thanks to the support of high-performing Canadian operations, Kirkland Lake Gold produced 180,155 ounces of

The stock is trading below its 100- and 50-day SMA lines

President Donald Trump’s plans to impose 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods is making gold investors anxious. As the tension between the U.S. and China simmers, the U.S. dollar becomes stronger and stronger, which is not supportive of the yellow metal.

The situation is building so much pressure that the bullion may be catapulted beyond $1,250 per ounce once the trade conflict calms down. A strong U.S. dollar does not stimulate the export of U.S. goods and services. If the president continues to impede the U.S. economy, the dollar cannot be supported long term.

Investment overview

Gold prices have moved higher over the past year, but even when prices were depressed I had a bullish long-term view on the asset class. My investment advice has always been exposure to physical gold followed by investments in gold miners.

Among the large companies in the gold mining sector, I hold a bullish view on Newmont Mining Corp. (NEM). There are several smaller companies in the sector, however, that have created immense value over the past 12 months and can potentially create value over the next several years as well.
