The gold price was able to gain again this week, as the U.S. economic figures were weak and inflation figures continue to run hot.
Consumer Price Index (CPI) continued to rise in December with 7% YoY and core CPI increased by 5.5% YoY.
The Producer Price Index (PPI) also increased by 9.7% YoY and Core PPI increased by 8.3% YoY.
Initial jobless claims also went up again last week to 230k. In addition, retail sales declined by 1.9% and consumer confidence fell to 68.8.
This has driven the gold price from the beginning of the week from still $1,790 to almost $1,830 towards the end of the week. On Friday, the gold price could then close the week at $1,817.35 per ounce.
The shares of gold producers were able to gain this week with the rising gold price support. Over a year, however, the performance of the shares does not look really good because there was a major sell-off in the gold mining shares at the beginning of 2021. Now they are starting to recover slightly.
For investors, this could be an opportunity to get into the gold mining stocks space early for relatively cheap prices yet. YTD, some of the stocks have already rebounded with GoldMining Inc. already gaining over 30%.
