The gold price after the US election

Andrew Maguire believes that regardless of the ultimate resolution of the US election, once an initial period of volatility settles the outlook for gold is positive.

For positive indicators for the gold price, the precious metals expert points to the massive stimulus package announced by each presidential candidate. According to Andrew Maguire, the vast inflow of stimulus into the economy will balloon global debt, in turn, swelling physical gold demand.

Relative to weakening fiat currencies, gold will do what it has done for thousands of years, act as a safe haven.
