UBS forecasts a 2024 gold upswing amid global uncertainties and central banks’ expected rate cuts. Advising a shift to high-quality stocks, UBS suggests moving from cash to quality bonds as rate cuts commence. Simultaneously, the Dutch Central Bank’s 612-tonne gold reserve underscores gold’s role in economic stability. This aligns with a broader European trend, potentially signaling a return to a gold standard. Amid historically low commodities relative to equities, including China’s rising gold reserves, there’s growing acknowledgment of gold as a hedge against economic uncertainties and potential financial crises.
