The report notes “commodities to rebound sharply unless there are widespread lockdowns due to the spreading delta mutant coronavirus.” In terms of the timeframe, the updated “forecast gold at $2,000/oz in 3, 6 and 12-month horizons.”.
Justifying the decision the U.S. investment bank says it “does not expect widespread lockdowns.” Many analysts have been looking into if the last set of restrictions would be the final set.
