According to an article published in the World Economic Forum, the Federal Reserve raising theinterest rates by 25bp in February 2023 has led to more investors becoming increasingly concerned about the current market conditions, fearing a devaluation of their portfolio assets. AuGold IRA’s new report examines the volatility of precious metal assets in the current market – and explores potential steps that investors with self-directed gold IRAs might need to consider.

The report also discusses global geopolitical events, trends, and economic factors, all causing financial market fluctuations. It includes the stance of the Federal Reserve on monetary policies and recent statements made by its chairman, Jerome Powell, who discussed the need to “forcefully” balance supply and demand to stabilize the economy.

The Federal Reserve raising interest rates can have a dual effect, as it can decrease the price of gold and other precious metals because higher interest rates increase the opportunity cost of holding them. However, if the interest rate hike is caused by inflation – as is the case now – precious metals can act as a hedge, explains the company. AuGold IRA, therefore, recommends starting a precious metals portfolio to take advantage of the shift in the market while the price of gold is still relatively low.

The report explains that gold prices remain strong, with analysts projecting prices to peak at $2500/oz by the end of 2023, and stabilize around the $3,000 mark by 2027. As long as gold prices are on the uptrend, the precious metal still makes for a sound investment to hedge against inflation and enhance retirement portfolios.
