3) logical point of view: with the strong rebound of the stock market and commodities, it suppresses the demand for risk aversion, so the price of gold is under pressure. However, the global epidemic situation is still grim, with the United States and other countries setting new records in one day and escalating international economic and trade frictions such as China and the United States, the United States and France, so the market demand for risk aversion still exists, gold price support still exists, and there is no possibility of a substantial decline. As a whole, we maintain the view that the center of gravity of precious metals prices will continue to rise, and investors are advised to continue to hold more orders, while those who do not enter the market are advised to continue to pay attention to the opportunities for long bargains. The logic lies in: 1. The "normalization" of the epidemic, the risk of the US election, the rise of local geopolitical risks in international trade disputes, and so on, the superimposed global economic outlook is still faced with great uncertainty, so the demand for risk aversion will exist for a long time. As a result, it will continue to support precious metal prices. 2. The Federal Reserve will keep interest rates near zero until 2022, which means that nominal interest rates will be suppressed at low levels for a long time. While the global central banks led by the Federal Reserve are still implementing easing policies and governments around the world are also stepping up their stimulus packages, inflation expectations will continue to improve under massive easing, which means that real interest rates (nominal interest rates-inflation rates) will remain low or even negative for a long time, which means that gold will continue to benefit in the medium term. 3. The scale of global debt continues to rise, and in the long run, the credit risk of the US dollar rises, the central bank hedges the risk or continues to buy gold, and investors continue to buy gold. ETF, strong financial investment demand will also continue to consolidate the medium-term upward support of gold prices.
