Gold Prices Hold Stable as Investors Appraise Policy Decisions

NEW YORK, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Among the many variables impacting the price of gold are interest rates. In order to reduce the pandemic's impact on the economy, various economic measures have had to be implemented, including near-zero interest rates and economic stimuli for business and individuals. And now, the Federal Reserve's policy-setting arm isn't expected to be changing interest rates or formally updating its economic forecasts when it concludes its two-day meeting Wednesday. Nonetheless, the U.S economy is witnessing a period of inflation. According to a report by Kitco, Jon Deane, the CEO of Trovio, explained that "we are already seeing inflation. If you look around the world, you see real estate prices, building supplies, and services skyrocket," he said. "What we created since the early 1990s is an entire financial infrastructure that is relying on debt, and we have accelerated that dramatically in our response to managing the COVID-19 crisis. In that regard, we will continue to increase the money supply globally, and we will continue to have a quite aggressive fiscal policy. We are sitting on an economic cliff." Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE: NFLD) (OTC: NFLDF), IAMGOLD Corporation (NYSE: IAG), NovaGold Resources Inc. (NYSE: NG), DRDGOLD Limited (NYSE: DRD), Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM).

Analysts at Metals Focus recently looked at the impact geopolitical instability has on gold. "While several geopolitical events have the potential to escalate, including on the Ukrainian border, more important for the gold price will be the still supportive macro backdrop… Monetary and fiscal policies, including the persistence of ultra-low interest rates and negative real yields, and concerns about future inflation will continue to make the case for strong gold investment for the foreseeable future," the analysts said, according to Kitco.

Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE: NFLD) (OTC: NFLDF) announced yesterday breaking news regarding, "non-brokered private placement of $4,100,000 consisting of 8,200,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.50 per Unit (the "Private Placement").
