Symposium convenor Kerry Stevenson believes a Donald Trump victory in the U.S. Presidential election in November will see global gold prices rise sharply.

Stevenson said, “Gold has traditionally risen in value at times of global fear and uncertainty.  The prospect of Donald Trump becoming U.S. President represents a moment of heightened global uncertainty and fear for investors and I predict a significant rise in the gold price as result, if that was to happen.”

“Investors would buy gold as a hedge against the uncertainty that a Trump victory would bring to the U.S. economy and to global markets.”
