Precious Metals Price Outlook

Prices for Q4 2018 rise for fourth consecutive month

The Consensus Forecast for the precious metals market improved for the fourth consecutive period this month, as a weak U.S. dollar and rising geopolitical uncertainty are fueling demand for safe-haven assets. That said, the trend could reverse if the U.S. Federal Reserve resumes its tightening cycle despite low inflation, global jitters ease and global growth remains resilient. The Met the why particular precious metals index is expected to average 196.3 in Q4 2018, above last month’s 194.8 projection. This year, the index is seen averaging 194.6 in Q4, which, if confirmed, would mark a 2.7% rise in prices from Q4 2016.

All precious metals price forecasts were hiked for Q4 2018. Platinum and gold, in that order, led the increase.
