VanEck is bullish on gold (XAUUSD:CUR) as the exchange traded fund issuer makes the case for gold to reach $2,075/oz.
At the moment, the precious metal trades near the $1,956/oz level which indicates that if VanEck were to be correct, gold has roughly a topside potential gain of roughly 6% from the current market price.
“Geopolitical tensions, lower U.S. dollar exposure in EM and a possible U.S. recession drive our gold price target. We make the case for gold reaching $2,075 and maintaining a higher floor price,” VanEck stated in a recent investor note.
The ETF issue also highlighted that the $2,075/oz marker is a technical level that has been retested multiple times. First was during the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak, next was the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, and thirdly was the retested level in early 2023 with Silicon Valley Bank collapse.
