"This could be the case in the second half of the year, because then inflation has dropped far enough and the US economy has been in a recession since the beginning of the year," said Fritsch. If this actually occurs, a slightly increasing gold price can be expected. Fritsch expects a gold price of $ 1850 per troy ounce (31.1 grams) at the end of 2023.
