Gold Investors Will Get Back in the Game When This Happens

The first quarter of 2023 brought strong demand for gold, but buying fell off in Q2.

Rich Checkan of Asset Strategies International said financial planners helped drive demand in Q1 as they sought physical metal for their clients. But in Q2 people put too much faith in the US Federal Reserve and purchases dropped off, at least at the retail level.

"I think part of what's propping up the gold price right now is central bank purchases, not the individual investor purchases," he said. "And I don't think they're going to get going until the Fed's done — but I think they're pretty close."
